Archery, one of our many target activities, is one of the most fun activities at Camp Sonshine.
We have 2 archery stations on grounds. They are both in the woods right next to a couple of other target activities like paintball gallery and tomahawk toss! We add new activities every summer and now have over 100 activities but Archery will forever be a Camp Sonshine Favorite every summer!
This activity is great for building confidence and learning how to get back up when you fail. It is also very fun to do with your friends and supportive counselors behind you. We believe it is important to challenge yourself especially in a safe environment like Camp Sonshine.
