Immerse yourself in the world of the Archer.

The focus of this week is on the fine art of bows, arrows and shooting. Make and bring home a primitive archery set as well as the fundamental skills of aiming, shooting, safety and sports etiquette. Join our senior bowyers and archers in mastering shooting form, camouflage and strategy. This camp is for all skill levels, and you can also bring your own bow or choose from our handmade collection to practice stalking and taking aim at woodland quarries. Build your strength and confidence as you discover the power of taking aim!

  • Make a primitive bow
  • Explore the fundamentals of aiming, shooting, safety and sports etiquette
  • Develop your carving skills and ability to focus with a relaxed mind

  • Create a quiver to carry the arrows you’ve crafted during the week
