Teaching Archery at Summer Camp

Teaching archery at our American Summer Camps means that you'll be working in idyllic surroundings, while having the time of your life and improving your CV with transferable skills for your future employment. Your role as an archery instructor will be to develop and enhance children’s confidence, skill and proficiency over the summer.

The children may be absolute beginners or have a lot of experience, so a broad knowledge and plenty of patience are important skills to possess. Your responsibilities may also include the maintenance and upkeep of the camp’s equipment.

What experience or qualifications are camps looking for?

Camps are looking for:

  • Individuals who are familiar with different bows within archery from longbow to compact bow
  • Archers who are familiar with archery games that they could use with children at camp
  • Young people who are able to teach archery techniques such as: draw and load, anchor, transfer and hold, aim and expand, release and follow-through and other techniques to children at summer camp.

As an archery instructor you are expected to be:

  • Hard-working
  • Fun and enthusiastic
  • Ability to balance the fundamentals of teaching skills and safety
  • Confident in teaching the principle of archery
  • Patient and understanding with the kids

Stand out from the crowd

Camps are looking for staff members who have worked in a similar archery role and/or have great personal experience of archery. Therefore, previous experience working with children in a supervisory role and a high level of personal skill in archery is essential for a strong application.

Qualifications to Teach Archery at Camp

If you would like to lead archery at summer camp, consider completing an instructor qualification to increase the chance of being placed at camp. The courses usually take two and a half days to complete, and there are lots of companies that offer these courses. Having awards such as the Arrows Young Leader Award or Archery GB Instructor Award are great assets to your application.

Voluntary work

You could also look into volunteering at an archery club or helping out at a Scout or Girl Guide camp where archery is going to be one of the activities that is involved. Not only will you gain experience teaching archery but also teaching children.
