Saltford sessions currently are either indoors at the Scout HQ or on the field adjacent weather and light permitting.

Saltford Scout HQ sessions are £3.00 per person if using the County kit or £1.50 if using your own kit

New venue - Wellsway School Sports Centre.

The first trial at this fantastic sports centre is on the 2nd February 9:30am to 11:30am.

Wellsway sessions are £4.50 if using the County kit or £3.00 if using your own equipment.

We expect this to be a popular session and it may replace the Saltford Scout hut on the 2nd weekends.

We will have 6 targets (twice the number at Saltford and room for more) and at 20 yards (twice the distance too!).
So we hope it will provide a much improved experience - come and try.

Gordano School session will be in the Gym for the Winter season and then on a large playing field on Clapton Lane from April to September. If the weather is inclement we have the option of still going in to the Gym.

Gordano Sessions are £5.00 per person if using County kit or £4.00 if using your own kit.

Full coaching will be provided by fully qualified Archery GB Coaches and Archery Leaders.

All equipment is provided or you may bring along your own bow and arrows.

Duke of Edinburgh - Archery can be your skill or your sport.

Master-at-Arms badge - Scouts can earn this badge.

National Scout Archery Competition - We are sending a team in May for the 3rd year and it's not too late to join us.
It's a great weekend camp.
