OCONTO CO., Wis. (WFRV) – If you ever aspired to be Katniss Everdeen, Legolas, or Hawkeye from the Avengers, you might finally have your chance.
Some young archers are learning to hit their mark thanks to a summer archery camp hosted by the Oconto River Bowmen. Every Wednesday for the next four weeks, young bow handlers can head out to the Oconto River Bowmen Archery Range in Lena to try test their skills.
“I think it’s really important for kids to learn this, I mean not only the archery side of it but just the safety side of it,” said Kris Oliver, President of the Oconto River Bowmen. “The respect for the equipment as well. For the kids, it’s just fun for them. They enjoy coming out here shooting the balloons and learning about it. They’re just always out here having a good time.”
Pre-registration is not needed to participate in the class- kids can simply show up and take part. Classes start at 5 p.m. and run until 7 p.m.
