Do I need to make a reservation or have prior experience to participate?

No reservations are required.  We aim for a maximum of 20 participants to keep social distancing.  You can show up anytime during the scheduled program to participate if the maximum has not yet been reached.  The open hours are in consideration of varying school end times.

Do I need to have and bring my own equipment?
No, we provide all the equipment and instruction for you to try archery. If you have your own bow, you can bring it, but the instructors may not allow you to use it if it exceeds the compound rating for our targets. Please do not bring your own arrows as we don’t want them to get mixed up with ours.
What's the minimum age?
Most children 6 and up have the ability to shoot on their own, without assistance. Younger children can attend and try, but may need assistance from the instructor or a parent.
What's the cost?
Free!
