Try it First; See What It’s Like
There are a number of ways to initially experience archery through The Archery Program – General Introductions, Private Introductions and summer camps for kids. Equipment is provided for all. The Archery Program uses really light-weight equipment at the beginning, which is critical for learning properly.
General Introductions – For those who have never shot, the One-Time Introduction allows you to either experience what target shooting is like, or to assess the interest of a child. In a small group with 2 instructors, there is basic instruction, then each instructor works with one person as he/she shoots. So, for an hour and a half, you can experience of what shooting is like and what instruction is like. Equipment is provided.
Gift Certificates for Introductions are available.
Private Introductions – For groups (Scouts, birthday parties, etc.) Private Introductions are possible. Contact The Archery Program directly for information. While parties are more relaxed, the general format of a Private Introduction is the same as the General Introduction.
Summer Camps for Kids – The Archery Program runs 3-day summer camps throughout the summer for kids 9-15. Registration is through the Fairfax County Parks and Recreation ParkTakes program. These camps are a longer exposure to shooting, learning basic technique, a short introduction to compound, and just having some fun.
General One-Time Introductions are regularly scheduled. The dates are listed on the registration form by month.
