Bow Making '19

Our goal for this week is for campers to make and bring home a primitive archery set! Spend most of each day working your bow stave under the guidance of seasoned bowyers. You’ll connect with the history of each individual tree as you tiller a raw stave into a bow. Twist cordage, cut and fire-straighten arrow shafts, and fletch them with real feathers and natural glue. Practice basic shooting and hunting techniques between carving sessions to round out your week. July 1-5, Aug 5-9; $330-$430
