Bow Making

Specialty Camp (Ages 11-14)

Dates & Locations

July 17 - July 21, 2017
4-H Acres

Our goal for this week is for campers to make and bring home a primitive archery set! Spend most of each day working your bow stave under the guidance of seasoned bowyers. You’ll carefully harvest a sapling and tiller it into a bow. Twist cordage, cut and straighten arrow shafts, and fletch them with real feathers and natural glue. Practice basic shooting and hunting techniques between carving sessions to round out your week.

† Tuition is based on a self-determined sliding scale. Funds received above the minimum go to our scholarship fund as a tax-deductible donation (you will receive a receipt at the end of the year).

  • 9:00am - 3:00pm
  • We offer free coverage from 8:30AM - 3:30PM to allow a half hour of flex time for drop off and pick up.
  • $310 - $410 (includes $15 material fee)
    per week
