Lancaster Archery Academy July Newsletter

We’re getting into the heart of summer now. That means the days are long and the sun is hot. It also means there’s great weather and plenty of daylight for shooting a bow outside!

We’ve got camps and classes galore coming up in the weeks ahead. No matter what your age or experience level, we’ve got some instructional opportunities to help you find the bull’s eye.

And in case you are thinking about taking up bowhunting, we can help you get started there too.



We’ve got multiple, 6-week classes starting soon in our Experience Archery, and Intermediate Archery courses, as well as classes in our Introduction to Competitive Archery and Explore Bowhunting courses.
