On successful completion of our Coyotes (11-16 years old) knife safety class and if awarded a badge to say so they can carry a knife to and from classes they are needed for (and use them there). They are not to be taken into the play area. The badge has to be current for this year. Whilst we actively encourage a healthy respect for safe knife use and the recognition of knives as tools through our Coyote Kids and Coyote training programmes. We would like to remind all concerned that this does not give carte blanche for children to wander the site carrying knives.
