Lehigh Valley, Pa – Youth between the ages of 8-18 (age as of Jan 1, 2024) are invited to join us for a beginner level archery experience. Our knowledgeable instructors will work with youth to instill the basics and develop confidence and competence on the range, creating a solid foundation of knowledge and skill that will allow youth to progress in this exciting sport. All equipment is provided to get youth started, or if you have your own, you can bring that to use. Learn about safety, teamwork, marksmanship, and more.

Meeting nights are 5/7/24, 5/14/24, 5/21/24, 5/28/24. Session 1 will be held from 5:30 PM – 6:45 PM and session 2 will be held from 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM. Registrants can select which session they want to participate. While we will do our best to honor session requests, they are not guaranteed.

This club includes instruction time with certified archery instructors and the use of archery equipment. All participants should bring closed-toed shoes and a hair tie to tie back any long hair if necessary. More club details will be shared with registrants closer to the time of the first session. Registration is limited to 10 registrants per session and is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once the session is filled, youth can register to be added to the waitlist.

For youth who are not already enrolled 4-H members, there will be a $30 4-H enrollment fee charge. You can pay your registration fee at the time of registration by credit card or by mailing a check made payable to Penn State University to Penn State Extension – Lehigh County, Attn: 4-H Archery Club, 4184 Dorney Park Rd, Room 104, Lehigh Co Agricultural Center, Allentown, PA 18104-5798. Payment must be received for registration to be considered complete and your spot to be held. Pre-registration is required; no walk-in registrants will be accepted. Lehigh County Shooting Sports participants have an additional club dues of $25 per discipline, due the night of the first session. Join the FUN!
