WELCOME TO OUR WORLD

 

We're glad you're here and we hope you've already found something that interests you about the Society for Creative Anachronism affectionately known as the "SCA." You're joining a worldwide organization that is centered around a system of values and chivalry that makes positive contributions to our global community daily. There is a lot to do in the SCA, so our local group here in El Paso, Texas and Hudspeth County known as the Barony of the Citadel of the Southern Pass, created this page to help you get connected and find your way into something that we know you'll love about what we do. Whether it is the combat with fighters in armor engaged in a full contact sport, community service and volunteering, archery, brewing, leatherworking, blacksmithing, events, historical recreation or any other aspect of our organization, we have something for everyone including the whole family.
