Registration is now full for 2019 Archery Camp
*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.
Bows and Arrows
Campers are welcome to bring their own equipment. They can bring a bow and/or crossbow. An archer who brings his own bow should bring his own arrows that are the correct “spine” for his bow. Campers should bring a minimum of 12 arrows with field points. The camper is responsible for his own equipment and will be liable for any damage done to their equipment and should also bring materials to repair their bow and arrows if needed. Campers will be discouraged from sharing their equipment for this reason. Campers who bring a bow will need to bring one that has a comfortable draw weight as they will be drawing it several times a day. Finger protection is recommended (ex: finger tab or glove).
If you have any questions on what bows and arrows to bring please call the managers for guidance at 620-872-3025. You can also email at . Mail all forms to address on Contact page.
Camp Christy does have bows and arrows in stock and will provide them to anyone needing them.
