New to Bellum- Family Camping Area:
Ticket holders who are the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 16 have the option to bring children with them to Bellum this year to camp in our designated family camping area.
Take note that children under the age of 16 visiting would not be able to engage in any of our field activities as they would not be considered club members, but as “wards” under the care of their parent or guardian while they visit Bellum Aeternus.
When accompanied by their parent/guardian at all times, during daylight hours wards can enjoy spectating everything Bellum has to offer while also being able to camp in the designated family area. From 7PM to 6AM daily, certain grounds of the park will be off-limits to wards who are non-members of the club, regardless of whether or not they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
How to register for Family Camping Area (note additional fee requirement):
To take advantage of this new family feature the parent or guardian must (at the gate):
Sign an acknowledgment of the family camping area rules, agree to abide by all federal/state/local laws, and site rules that would apply to the child, who at all times is not a member of the club but a ward under the responsibility and care of their parent or guardian.
Complete a standard waiver (something all Bellum attendees must complete) on behalf of the individual under the age of the 16. The only difference with this waiver will be that the child would not be recognized as a member of the club, but as a ward under the care and supervision of the parent or guardian whom would be a member.
NOTE: A gate fee of $10.00 will be added to the parent/guardians entree fee for each ward they bring to Bellum that will be staying past 7PM and/or camping overnight in the family camping area. This can only be purchased at the gate and the $10 is a one time fee for the complete duration of this event, regardless of whether they are checked in on Wednesday or Saturday.
If the child under 16 will not be camping, but is visiting to spectate between 6:00AM and 7:00PM on either Friday or Saturday, as it has been with past Bellums, there will be no $10 fee.
