Children's Activity Event, Mon 29 Jul - Fri 30 Aug 2019


Why spend summer playing videogames when you could get outdoors and become an archer for real?

White Dragon Archery are offering adventure day camps for ages 8+ throughout the summer holidays. At only £25 per six-hour day, you’ll learn how to shoot a real bow and arrow with the help of expert coaches.

The day is a blend of discovering history and developing a new skill – all while having lots and lots of fun! After a short but thorough safety talk, children will hone their skills on a fun range of targets from monsters to medieval armies and traditional targets from the sport’s centuries of history.

Once your band of Robin Hoods and Maid Marians has mastered the modern recurve-style bow, we’ll move on to the longbow and try some challenges, like aiming at half-hidden targets and trying a ‘clout’ style long-distance shoot.

You’ll also get to see – and try on – medieval archer’s armour and real chainmail, and find out what it’s like to shoot in each! At the end of the day, you’ll have your chance to shoot a flaming arrow with the help of your coach.

White Dragon’s facilities include an indoor range as well as a beautiful woodland and grassy outdoor ranges, so whatever the weather the camps will go ahead. Please bring lunch, sensible outdoor shoes and weather-appropriate clothes.

Booking is essential online at You can book multiple days as coaches will be sure to mix things up and provide different experiences each day!
