Get Kids on Target through the 4-H Archery Program!
4-H Archery is a very popular shooting sport, appealing to a wide range of ages and easily enjoyed by youth of all skill levels year around. It is one of several disciplines within the Michigan 4-H Shooting Sports program which has been active for more than 20 years involving youth in more than 70 counties throughout the state. Now it is time to bring it to Lake and Newaygo County.
Local 4-H volunteers are forming a 4-H archery club and are inviting families to learn more about the 4-H archery program by attending an archery information meeting on Monday, March 20 from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm at the MSU Extension office, located at 4747 West 48th Street in Fremont.
The 4-H archery club, open to youth, ages 9 – 19, will begin club meetings on Mondays beginning April 17 at 6:30 pm in the community room at the Newaygo County Agricultural Fairgrounds and later on the fairgrounds when the weather warms.
The focus of the 4-H archery club is geared toward youth safety and shooting techniques for archery. Youth will learn how to handle both compound and recurve bows responsibly for target practice and learn respect for the natural environment.
The goal of all 4-H Youth Development programs is youth development. All project areas work toward developing skills youth need to be productive and positive adults in society. Decision making, teamwork, problem solving, being responsible and having high self-esteem are just a few of the many skills 4-H helps to develop.
