Archery is one of the most popular (and oldest!) classes that Greystone has to offer. Archery has a state-of-the-art facility with competitive equipment and a thriving culture. Counselors will teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced campers throughout the summer.
Archery starts off in the archery shed, where campers gear up and are fitted for which bow will work best for them. Our staff then instruct campers on how to shoot and carry themselves on the line. Once familiar and comfortable with safety protocols, campers are encouraged to work through our Archery levels.
As part of the Archery staff, you will be an essential part of a close-knit team that will balance safety with fun. Our Archery staff encourages and engages with our campers throughout the class, helping them to achieve their goals and surpass their expectations. You will love working on our Archery staff if you enjoy encouraging those around you while also having a keen eye for safety and detail.
Greystone is so much more than just a fun summer job. Here you’ll work hard and navigate challenges in a supportive environment, growing as a leader and as a professional. Invest in your future with a summer at camp!
