Archery

Bullseye! After learning the basics of equipment, form, and technique, girls will challenge themselves to hit the target and encourage their friends to do the same. The sport of archery takes practice, focus, and a sense of fun, so when Girl Scouts apply themselves to learning archery, they also learn what it takes to master any new skill in the future.

There are no minimum or maximum numbers of participants per session; however, we recommend scheduling no more than 20 participants to be at the range at a time to ensure everyone has ample opportunity to participate. For Brownie participants, we recommend scheduling no more than 12 participants to be at the range at a time to ensure adequate instructor assistance and supervision.
