Archery is a fun and skillful sport that requires you to consistently hit a given target. Your Scout come-and-try shoot could lead you to take archery further by joining an archery club. This will allow you to compete at a national or international level even as far as the Olympic Games. At the come-and-try shoot you will be given basic skills to safely fire a bow and arrow while having fun with your friends.

If you wish you can achieve an Individual Sport badge for Archery, which includes gaining knowledge on different equipment, their maintenance and repair.

The Scout Archery Team can set up an archery range in your Scout Hall or you can visit the Woodhouse Archery Range, where we also have the Archery Badge Camps. The Archery team can also adapt archery to a theme, a special event, District Camp or special location. In alignment with Scouts Care for the Environment; Scouts only promote target shooting.
