Have-a-Go/Arrows (Principally for those aged 3 - 9 years old):

£3 for approx 15 minutes shooting time - (min age 3 - includes use of special soft-tipped equipment)

(Please note ALL children must be accompanied by an adult)

These 1:1 sessions are for the casual junior person who literally just wishes to ‘have-a-go’

We provide you with all the equipment and basic instruction to have a fantastic, fun, few minutes supervised shooting.

Launched in September 2012 by AGB, Arrows has been created for primary schools to introduce young children to archery in a fun and safe way.

This ‘mini’ version of archery provides child-friendly equipment to get started quickly and easily.

We wish to introduce archery concepts and skills through fun activities rather than technical instruction. The activities enable you to use archery as a way of encouraging learning in other areas; for example, maths through scoring, literacy through language, and citizenship though cooperation and self-discipline. These activities provide an alternative and complementary way of developing movement skills (such as coordination, balance, and strength), and personal, social and mental skills, as well as archery skills.

We hope that once young people have experienced fun and active archery games at school through Arrows, they will be enthused to have a go at the traditional sport of archery. A competitive festival format is included with Arrows and this is the suggested competition format for the Primary School Games.

We shoot on the grounds of the campsite (Tamar Valley Camping) so why not consider visiting, staying here with your caravan, in a Pod, Holiday Cottage, or Apartment, exploring the area and giving archery a go.  

(For those staying several days and over the age of 9 we may even be able to provide a bespoke beginners course for the family) - please feel free to enquire.
