Viking Ship and Medieval Combat Outpost











Welcome to our Viking camp! The medieval period could be quite dangerous so we will outfit you with a Viking shield and weapons. Join us as we sail and row a real Viking ship on the the inland sea of 10,000 acre Lake Bridgeport. The Viking Ship is back in 2013 from a major overhaul in 2012.
Learn some of the medieval history of Nordic peoples. Gather round the cauldron and share a hearty Norse supper of meat and flatbreads cooked by the Viking staff in a medieval camp.

Learn medieval combat skills and compete in a combat skills tournament. In the Warrior Competition the honors go to the fastest warrior completing the combat course with sword, spear, battleaxe, longbow, and crossbow.

At dawn you must sail to a coastal village and overcome the guards. Your breakfast is in the village granary - if you want to eat you must take the village.

You might finish your stay at our humble village with sesion firing medieval artillery - like large trebuchets.

It's challenging, rewarding, demanding, and fun! The Viking Thane will provide all equipment and food.
