A recurve bow is what people call a traditional bow. No Wheels, only a stick and a string. Many people think a recurve is easier to shoot due to it's simplicity. However, Shooting a recurve is harder than a compound and takes lots of dedication and practice time to become proficient. There is no right or wrong, only personal preference in choosing what type of bow to shoot.
Our recurve camp, the only camp where you get to KEEP THE BOW.
Each attendee in our recurve camp will receive their own personal bow to keep. We choose a nice quality recurve with wooden riser. The set includes, arrows, arm guard, Hip Quiver, string and stringer. Everything they need to enjoy archery for a long time.
Our camp will teach each attendee how to set up their bow and care for it. The 11 steps to shooting will focus on the Olympic Style of shooting in the National Training System.
Cost for the recurve camp is $350 and includes the bow. Recurve Camps are from 1:30- to 3pm on the available weeks. Camps are Tuesday through Friday
