For both sessions, there are two groups, Experienced and Novice, based on several factors including age, experience, and competitive goals.
The Experienced camp is designed as a competition training camp that focuses not only on form and shooting, but also on all the other critical parts of archery that competitive shooters must know such as bow maintenance and tuning. Archers currently and regularly involved in Stanford's JOAD program should sign up for the Experienced camp.
The Novice camp will teach similar skills, though at a slightly more basic level. It is intended for kids who are new to the sport and looking for a positive first experience with archery.
During the camp, archers will not only become proficient in shooting a bow, but will also receive instruction on other archery essentials such as bow tuning, arrow maintenance, self-analysis, troubleshooting and tournament etiquette. Additional activities will include arrow making, target making, and various fun shoots (balloon shoots, etc).
Both beginner and advanced archers will receive high level instruction from experienced members of the Stanford Archery Team. Because of the excellent student-to-counselor ratio, the specific camp activities can be tailored to the attending archers.
