The PLA is a family oriented unit with an emphasis on authenticity. We offer a variety of camping experiences ranging from a full "winter camp" at some events, all the way to camping on the gun with nothing but what we carry on our backs at other events. We are actively soliciting recruits who share our values, and we welcome their entire families to come participate if they wish.
We welcome all recruits to attend events and participate on the gun crew while training. However, there are certain requirements which must be met before a recruit is eligible for membership. These requirements were decided by the PLA membership and are subject to change. Below is a list a of the requirements along with brief explanation for some.
