- A fire is considered extinguished when it is cooled enough that it will not reignite when fresh tinder is added.
- ALL flames of any type must be monitored at ALL TIMES.
- Fire extinguishers are required for each tent, kitchen, and fire pit. Fire extinguishers must be visible and easy to access.
- All candles and lanterns must be in enclosed containers.
- Torches (of any kind) are forbidden.
- No flames of any kind inside your tent or pavilion.
- Fire pits/braziers must have at least a 6 inch vertical edge and be at least 12 inches off the ground. There must be a 10 foot clearing above and around all firepits. Flames must never extend more than 12 inches above the edge of the fire pit/brazier.
- Patio heaters may be permitted at the rangers’ discretion. Any patio heaters must receive approval prior to the event. Please contact the Seneschal to inquire about use of patio heaters.
- Violations of the fire rules will result in the camp being banned from having fires for the rest of the event. If a fire is ignited in a camp banned from fires, the whole camp will be removed from site without refund. The Parks Department may modify the campfire policy at any time.
