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.
