My lady and I used to teach SCA classes in Early Modern English and mark off a spot in front of our pavilion as an enchanted circle; but that was in antediluvian days. Neither the pavilion nor the file cabinets of notes survived.

I think so, but i can doublecheck with His Grace, Duke Cariadoc, who originated and continues to operate the Enchanted Ground (he is actually the reason there IS a Pennsic).
I camped there at my first Pennsic. Within the fence everyone must stay in persona and cannot have any obviously out of period things - although those of us who need eyeglasses are allowed to wear them. We're allowed non-period items in our tents if we must, but not out in public. I had a wonderful time - except for the hike up Cardiac Hill every morning - if you're young and fit it probably won't be such a problem - and there is a bus periodically.
I haven't camped there since because i was teaching classes and it would have been too hard for me to get all my supplies up the hill, and impossible to get them on the bus.
I do look forward to camping there again sometime soon.
