Archery is a great sport to develop strong problem solving skills, increase focus and determination, learn goal setting, build confidence and create friendships. Archery teaches students respect, sportsmanship and teamwork. Archers must respect the sport’s rules, as well as each other and instructors. The very heart of archery is learning a step-by-step method for drawing a bow and shooting an arrow. Even the youngest archers quickly learn that by slowing down and focusing on one step at a time, they are more successful at putting arrows in the middle of the target. When archers make mistakes, they are taught that the solution is to analyze their steps and focus on improving one thing at a time. This is a great recipe for success on the archery field, in the classroom, and in life.
Our certified instructor will be leading an Archery Day Camp on Monday, February 17th which is a student holiday. The participants will learn the basic parts of a compound bow, types of bows and arrows, and how to draw, aim, and release (shoot) safely. They will practice shooting from a standing position at multiple targets, and contests and games are introduced to practice new skills. Space is limited so be sure to sign-up early.
Whether your “target” is improving your health, confidence, self-awareness, or focus, archery can help your child hit the bull’s-eye and be more confident, in and out of the classroom!
Archery camp is limited 10 campers ages 9-15. $75 for members, $95 for non-members. Registration opens for ONP members December 1st, December 8th for non-members.
