Children’s Archery Parties
We can run an archery party for you at our great indoor venue in Archway North London. Alternatively we are also mobile so can come and run an archery party at a venue you hire nearer to you. Contact us for more info.
We work with children aged 8 years old upwards.
Outline of a Typical Archery Party:
We start by getting all the children kitted out with equipment and then we give them a safety briefing and a quick demonstration of the correct shooting technique.
Instructors will then help participants to get shooting safely and confidently. Then once everyone’s hitting the target and shooting as a group, we will try some archery shooting games (Balloon assassin is always a favourite!).
Once all the children have had plenty of practice targeting the gold we will finish off the session with a fun competition with personalized certificates for everyone taking part, medals for the top three archers and an extra little gift of an arrow pen for the birthday boy or girl. The archery will last approximately 1.5 hours.
After the archery is finished we can also provide you with a space to use at the venue if you would like to bring in your own snacks/cake etc for the children to have after. We include 30 minutes use of the space after the archery as part of our standard booking. But if you feel you would like longer, which is recommended for larger groups we can arrange to hire the space for a further 30 minutes giving you 1 hour after the archery. This must be arranged at the time of booking.
At our venue for maximum safety and enjoyment, children’s archery parties are generally limited to a maximum of 16 participants.
One of our young archers enjoyed his party so much he made a little film about it!
