Archery

We offer archery sessions for up to 12 participants (£20 for a one-hour session, Girlguiding groups).  Sessions are suitable for Brownies, Guides and Senior Section.  Subject to instructor availability we offer sessions during the day (usually 10am-4pm) at weekends, and weekday evenings.  

At Stanemuir we shoot lighter weight, rubber tipped arrows called "floo floo" at cartoon targets (the middle picture on the right of the page), and we offer traditional target archery (top picture). 

All groups from Girlguiding Edinburgh who take part in traditional sessions will have their score recorded for entry into the County Archery Competition - highest score wins (adjusted for group size).  The Trophy for the 2014 season was won by a combined team from Pentland Division - can your group get the gold this year?

Get in touch with the archery adviser if you'd like to discuss a possible session, or book online

 

 

Archery sessions for bigger camps and events

If you have a camp with more than 24 girls, it can be difficult to fit archery into your programme.  Since 2013 we have a different option vailable where we will take 12 girls for a brief taster of archery for half an hour, with each girl getting to shoot at least 6 arrows.  This means that in a typical 2-hour activity slot at camp we can take up to 48 girls. 

Because this setup takes twice as many instructors as usual, the charge is £20 for each intensive half hour session (the same as for a normal 1-hour session), but this is still excellent value at less than £2 per head.  If you might be interested in this option please contact Sandra in the first instance, as it is very dependent on instructor availability.  Enquire early to avoid disappointment!
