This seasonal program is specifically designed only for first-time students who may have been interested in trying archery and is focused on introducing these new students to the basics of archery so that they learn correct processes while having FUN! On the concluding Friday of each week-long session, there is an in-house tournament for the students.  The syllabus for each camp session remains the same and does not change week over week.  Those who show a continued interest in the sport at the end of their registered session week will have  a chance to learn about follow up options at the end of the tournament date.

In addition to shooting, during the week session all students will learn about the following (but not limited to) schedule outlined below in the “Daily Camp Schedule 2022 Outline” section

Due to our personal in-house restrictions and best quality for training archers, we will only allow a maximum of 11 students per camp group and rotating lines to ensure safe distancing is maintained for archers.

MANDATORY ATTENDANCE: The 1st day (Monday) of the camp session CANNOT be skipped.  Failure to attend the first date of camp (Monday) will result in the student being automatically removed from the rest of the course without refund.  Day 1 (Monday) is the main safety course required for any student in our range to be able to utilize our equipment and facility.  

Please consider this requirement, before choosing a camp week session for your student as it will mean you forfeit the paid week, unless advised 14 days prior to be able to reschedule camp week selected.

Minimum Registration Age: 10
(by 1st day of their registered session, non-negotiable)

Maximum, Registration Age: 17
(okay if by 18 by last day of their registered session)

Previous Experience: None to limited

How Many Sessions Can We Do?We HIGHLY suggest against having any student sign up for / attend more than 1 session since the program outline and learning syllabus remains the exact same, session over session to give NEW archers first hand experience (see “Daily Camp Schedule 2022 Outline” section below.  Once your archer is past this session, other limited possibilities might become available, based on their safety level during camp.

All equipment (bow, arrow and safety) is included

$450 rate for the 5 day session (12.5 hour week). 

  • Each day is 2.5 hours

This form will also automatically include the Minor Waiver and COVID Vaccination Card submission (if applicable to student), so there is no need to do those two forms separately.

After the form is received by the range, the following will occur:

  • The form will be reviewed / verified / pre-processed as “temporarily held”
  • Upon verification of submission info and session availability, an invoice for the full amount to hold the spot for the student.  Spot is not guaranteed until this occurs and remains as “temporarily held”

  • Receive official range confirmation from Coach Lani (contact@southbayarcherylessons.com) only after full payment is received. The final confirmation will reverify all final details previously submitted before camp T-Shirt is printed for student’s session

The Seasonal “Summer” Camp Program will be lead by Coach Makanalani F. Thatcher and additionally taught by Coach Paul Farbman for the whole group.  Both coaches are USA Archery (USAA) Certified Level 4-NTS Coach & Level 2 Judges.

The program will also have additional 1-2 established in-house Advanced or Elite level archery students (per week session) that will act as dedicated “Trainee Instructors” that will be assigned to “break-out” groups of 3-4 students each, depending on the age group, to help give each new archer a more dedicated experience within the program.

For Registered Archers of the Summer Camp:

  1. Registered Student may remove their mask during the week of shooting, IF they either show the card on Day 1 or pre-submit a vaccination card to have on file (as al of our other in-house archery group program students do; partial, full or full+booster are all acceptable)

    OR

  2. Registered Student may still  participate but will be required to keep their mask on during the camp & while actively near other students

We require this for the students specifically for a few reasons:

  1. All archers will be actively sharing equipment as we work to find the best fit for them during the week (bows, arrows, finger tabs, etc) based on age, stregthn and skills exhibited.  This is shared equipment that may come into contact with the mouth, face, and hands (hands then contact the face) of other archers and we want to keep the health of all.
  2. We wish to avoid any kind of potential general sharing of any serious viruses (flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, COVID, etc) by any students and Coaches/Instructors who may participate that have lower immunity tolerance than others.  This includes both from the camp as well as our private students and our other in-house program students who use the same equipment daily.

For Parents of Registered Archers of the Summer Camp

While parents may enter the location without a mask during Drop Off & Pick Up, we ask that they exit before class begins (since our Instructors / Coaches will not be wearing masks during active training more than likely so that students can hear the lesson more clearly). 

Additionally, we do ask that all spectating families respect each other by social distancing from other each families’ chosen sitting benches (each family gets 1 bench for spectating), particularly on tournament day (Friday) of a camp session.

Please note that the above requirements “might” be removed by the time of the actual session (not guaranteed), and only at the discretion of the range and it’s Coaches / Instructors.  See “Range Policy: COVID-19 Safety Requirements & Updates for more updated information

Parents / Guardians are welcome to come in to see the location their students will shoot on the first day of the camp (Monday) if they arrive before 10:00 AM, but we request that they exit the premises before we are able to actively begin the program. This helps to ensure that all students are focused when we begin training at 10:00 AM sharp and that attention is not distracted.

During the primary portion of the camp week, we request that parents drop off / pick up only, again for focus and attention of the students.

Watching is allowed and encouraged for the last day (Friday) during the tournament to see what your child has learned and achieved during the week.  See next section for “Guidelines For Watching The Friday Tournament

While Parents and families will be able to watch in person on the last day of the program during the tournament, we ask that there are no disruptions to the tournament in process as it will be run in accordance to the official tournament protocol as laid out by USA Archery Guidelines.

Parents, guardians and family members will allowed be allowed inside to watch the tournament in person.  We may need to limit the spectator allowance per family depending on the number of registered students in each group for space and health reasons, due to our own in-house COVID-19 protocols that are range specifically and in place for the safety and assurance of other regular range students who may share the same equipment the rest of the year.

In the event that we cannot Safely have all parents/families in the range at the same time with the students on the day of the Friday tournament (due to health requirements as outlined by our COVID-19 in-house specific range policy) we will we will advise families and have an alternative method to ensure families can still watch their archers.

A physical printed copy of the Summer Camp Program Workbook will be provided to all students on day 1.  This book should be brought with them each day as it contains the items we will review each day as well as the morning quiz to ensure they remember what was reviewed the day before.

Additionally, there is a digital version of this handbook available for parents to view, using a a student specific password.  This password will be given to each individual student at the end of Day.  This is to ensure that the student has successfully attended and completed the Day 1 portion of the summer camp, which is mandatory in order to continue the week.

Day 1 (Monday) is MANDATORY: If you know your child will not be able to attend a Day 1 please register for a different week session
Day 1 outlines ALL Safety Requirements (required by the range’s insurance), Range Protocols and Steps of Shooting that are used during the week.
Students absent on Day 1 will be NOT be permitted to use range facilities, range equipment or continue the rest of the camp week
Due to time constraints, this mandatory overview CANNOT be made up later in the week
