Archery Immersion: 8-Month Training Program Portland, OR
Archery Training Immersion
This is our immersive training program for anyone interested in improving their archery skill set. We train with our traditional wood Rangers bow. We also work with modern laminate, compound, English longbow and more. Focuses include target shooting, stealth archery and principles of primitive bow hunting.
Please Note This is our adult archery training program, we also offer a youth archery training program.
How It Works
Class is one monthly Sunday from 1pm-4pm. Training is with our lead archery instructor, Joseph Flanagen. Class typically meets at the Trackers Scout Pit, often warming up at our indoor range. We then transport to local ranges or wilderness spaces for field training. Students can bring their own archery gear and tackle but it is not required as we also provide all necessary gear.
8 Field Days One Sunday every month, 1pm-4pm (may vary with travel time that day). Two specialized field trips from 10am-4pm happen in October and April in order to visit our 3D Range in Sandy, OR. See below for schedule (includes the Community Archery Tournament). Check out the class schedule.
Transportation is provided. All programs begin at the Trackers Scout Pit, 5040 SE Milwaukie Avenue, Portland, OR. Field Days occur at either at the Washington Park Archery Range, Camp Trackers in Sandy, Oregon or at various local greenspaces.
