Archery at Colorado Parks and Wildlife

Submitted by Jessica Spangler

Denver

Multi-Level Troop 65659 invited several other area troops to participate in an archery clinic at Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The Schools and Outdoor Learning Environments (SOLE) program connects kids and their families to the outdoors!

16 Girl Scouts ranging from Brownie to Senior participated in the clinic, where they learned about the parts of a bow and safety rules in a classroom before heading to the range. Many of the girls had never tried archery before. They had a great time and learned how they can continue to pursue archery at state parks.

Outdoor skills training

Looking for outdoor skills training to prepare you for a summer of fun?

We have two great trainings lined up to get you certified in archery and boating!

Archery and the Small Craft Safety certification courses are required, if you’d like to take girls to shoot archery or take them boating in any capacity (both Brownie-Ambassador).

Both certifications last for three years and will teach you all the basics of how to set up a class, instruct a fun and safe class, give you activity/game ideas, and make it impactful for girls!

The archery class is also open to girls 15-years-old and older, as well as adults! Small Craft Safety is only open for adults 18+.

Having this archery certification allows you to reserve our traveling archery gear set (bows, arrows, targets, protective gear) and take it to shoot anywhere you’d like!

There are zero requirements for taking the archery class. For Small Craft Safety, you need to know how to swim and tread water.

Cadettes from Routt County enjoyed earning their Archery Badge. Thanks to local certified instructors who conducted a safety orientation and then helped the Cadettes learn archery skills at the Routt County Rifle Range. The girls also got to learn how to shoot an air pistol and a shotgun. The girls gained new skills and courage!

Become an archery instructor – trainings available!

archery

Does the thrill of teaching girls how to “hit a bullseye” sound fun to you? Consider becoming a certified archery instructor!

Our council needs more instructors to help teach archery at:

  • Local Troop Events
  • Service Unit and Troop Campouts
  • Day Camps led by volunteers
  • Family and Troop Camps led by volunteers

In a 4-hour workshop, you will learn the basics of how to instruct archery and test on skills that will help you safely share this exciting and popular sport with Girl Scouts!

Cost: $45/person (what a deal!)
Date: May 31, 1-5pm at Sky High Ranch (registration opens March 31)

Click on the links above for more information. We hope to see you at our trainings!

Archery instructor training is often priced much higher than $45/person, we are able to keep the costs low by having a dedicated volunteer teach the courses this year.

Once trained, you may be asked to help lead archery at Girl Scout events – our girls love archery! Archery equipment is available to rent at a rate of $50/day through Girl Scouts of Colorado.
