The archery range and Archery 101 course introduces kids to the world of bow sports
In addition to the Archery 101 classes, Their Junior Ranger Program will benefit with the new Junior Ranger Archery Academy, which takes kids onto the range for a full day of honing their archery skills. “I’ve been begging for an archery range here at the park since my very first summer,” said education specialist, Carley York. “For Junior Ranger days in the past we had to bring a teacher in, and didn’t have as much time to spend with the kids learning technique and intermediate skills. So the introduction of our own range, and having myself and our chief ranger, Mike Abston, both as certified United States Archery Association Level 2 Archery Instructors, will give us the equipment and knowledge we needed to really introduce kids to the world of bow sports. I couldn’t be more excited.”
