As we continue to build our pool of qualified instructors at camp, we want to announce the schedule for this year’s Archery Instructors Training. To open the archery range at Camp Li-Lo-Li requires an NADA Basic instructor certification. NADA (National Alliance for the Development of Archery) is the training organization for the two main national archery organizations (USA Archery and National Field Archery Association). The stated purpose of the Basic certification, “To introduce how to teach archery to a new instructor, who has most likely never shot before.” Scope of training includes safety, range setup, basic equipment setup and repair, and teaching the basic steps of shooting. The certification process is broken into approximately 50% classroom training and 50% hands-on instruction at the archery range.

This nationally recognized course will enable you to be an archery instructor and open the archery range at camp and elsewhere. Mark White will be teaching the course at camp, starting at 7:00 PM on Friday July 27th and dismissing on Saturday evening (the 28th) after supper. The cost of the training materials is $20 per person which includes receiving the certification card immediately at the conclusion of the training (which is good for 3 years).

Pre-registration will run through Friday, July 13th to ensure we have enough sets of training materials for everyone. All other necessary equipment for the training will be provided by Camp.

The course is open to staff members age 16 and up. For more information, contact Mark White at [email protected]. If you know anyone who has expressed an interest in being an archery instructor at Camp and needs a Basic instructor class, please have them contact Mark at the email address above.
