Archery & Crossbows

Traditional Archery (3-14 years)

Little Robin Hoods will have a brilliant experience in our exciting archery sessions. We only use purpose built bows and newly designed safe soft shot arrows that have been designed by Archery GB specifically for children. We also guarantee that every child will develop the necessary skills to be able to hit a variety of fun themed targets by the end of this activity.

Field Archery (6-14 years)

Action-Ants Field Archery is brilliant new sporting and educational activity created by John French for primary school children. This exciting sport has already become very popular in many schools across Cumbria.

Like traditional archery, field archery involves shooting arrows at targets, but this is where the similarity ends. Field archery is shot on a course, which is similar in nature to a golf course. During a shoot, archers will shoot at 15 x themed targets, shooting 3 x arrows at each target.

The targets are all set at a variety of different distances They may also have to be shot up or down hill or at difficult shooting angles.

NEW Crossbows (4-11 years)

Our friendly instructor will teach participants how to use a mini version of a crossbow, one of the most ancient shooting weapons. Children will have an opportunity to shoot at a variety of exiting targets to improve their techniques. This is the perfect activity for parties, youth clubs and hoilday clubs.
