We will meet at a designated outdoor location for archery in South Lake Tahoe on the U.S. Forest Conservancy Land. After group introductions, your host will provide a brief overview in the history of the bow and arrow; as well as some fun facts about archery.
From the trailhead, you'll embark on an easy 5 minute hike to the designated archery area. Along the way your host will talk about Indigenous cultures of the Washoe and Paiute natives who occupied the great Lake Tahoe basin. From there you'll learn about the different types of bows and their anatomy, the various parts and functions for each piece of equipment, and review archery safety.
Guests will be assigned a bow based on height, arm length, strength, and draw weight of pull. Guests will be assigned to a target station on the archer line. Your host will demonstrate how to string a bow and teach guests the proper archery technique.
Guests will become familiar with archer safety, setting up a bow, and proper archery techniques associated with aiming, targeting and arrow release. Guests will practice their new archery skills learned, and leave experiencing one of the world’s oldest sport . . . Archery!
