*This class will have a 15 camper maximum
During Archery camp children and adult sponsors alike will learn and improve their abilities to shoot a bow through various drills. Each drill will be about an hour in duration and will be used to encourage fellow archers as campers will not only be required to shoot their bow but also to assist others. Cabin versus cabin competitions will follow each drill to allow for practical application of new found skills.
In evening sessions campers will learn more about the historical use and the technology of archery as well as fundamental teachings of Christ. All evening sessions are required attendance in order to participate in archery sessions the next day.
Campers will also be given private time for morning devotions to reflect.
Each archer will be shooting several arrows a day which can wear on shoulder, arm, and back muscles and joints. Those with previous injuries are welcome to attend but should only participate as much as can be tolerated. There will not be an athletic trainer available. The camper will need to discuss any concerns with the camp nurse or managers.

Safety equipment includes finger guards and wrist bracers.
Camp Christy does have bows and arrows in stock and will provide them to anyone needing them.
