Membership in the Federation is broken down like this.
Membership gets you access to Master Druids, Arch Druids, and Elder Druids. It also gives you access to training and knowledge on where to find other Kindreds and Members.
Membership Rates are designed to cover the cost of fees of running this organization. It also gives us the ability to make initial payment on Land Rental for Holding Festivals, and eventually purchasing a Steading for the Federation.
Children and Young Adults in the CHF. They can participate with their parents in rituals and organized functions. However, they can not take Oaths to the Kindred or CHF. With a parent member, they can take Oaths at 16, with renewed Oaths at 21. Without a parent, 18 or 21, depending on the opinion of the Druid and/or Chieftain. If you are old enough to take oaths to your country, and choose to do so, that will be taken into account.
WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING DUES. THAT IS NOT SET UP YET. CURRENTLY JOINING THE CHF IS FREE. THE DRUIDS WILL MAKE A DECISION AND PROVIDE A DATE FOR IT TO START. HAVING A KINDRED, WHICH WILL HAVE A CHF RECOGNIZED DRUID, WILL GET YOU A CHANCE TO WEIGH IN ON THAT FUTURE DECISION.
