4-H Shooting Sports — Archery Camp (ages 13-15)
Hit your target at Bryant Pond with our Archery Camp! Maybe you’ve taken Bowhunter and you’d like to refine your shooting skills, or possibly you’re looking to break into archery as a competitive sport.

We’ll cover every aspect to allow your shooting to improve, and there will be plenty of time for practice and fun. Each day we’ll focus on the fundamentals, and the week will culminate with a friendly competition! You’ll have the chance to shoot various types of targets including 3D.

What to Bring List: WTB Site Based Residential
Because The University of Maine defines firearms and archery equipment as weapons, and has a strict weapons policy for the safety of all, and for liability and insurance reasons, camp program participants are asked not to bring their personal shooting sports equipment to Bryant Pond 4-H Camp & Learning Center without prior authorization from the Camp Director or the Maine 4-H Shooting Sports Program Coordinator. The 4-H Shooting Sports instruction team at Bryant Pond is very familiar with the wide variety of equipment here, and competently provide complete instruction in the shooting sports discipline programs that we offer.
