"Education Through Entertainment"
That has been the motto of Clan Darksail for 20 years now, and we do this through the teaching of all kinds of curriculum, for kids K through 12th grades. With everything from sword fighting demonstrations, the history of piracy in California and worldwide, life at sea, the history and demonstration of Black Powder weaponry, nautical oral tradition (storytelling and sea chanty singing) and so much more, Clan Darksail has so much to offer your private or public school.
We are also available to just entertain children at your school carnival or movie night, and we do readings of children's books (often with the author in tow!) about pirate stories as well. Whether its a full-on rally in a gymnasium or just a few pirates in a classroom, we are willing to tailor our style to fit YOUR needs.
And the best part? If your school is a non-profit, we work for next to free! (Usually asking only our travel expenses for gas and possibly a school lunch in return, often less than $40). Although our main area is the Inland Empire region of Southern CA, we have traveled to the High Desert, San Diego, Los Angeles and more.
