Robin Hoods Secrets with Archery

The story of Robin Hood evokes clever and thoughtful adventures in the woods, stealthy river crossings, balancing on logs and fine homes in trees. How did this merry band of men and women keep their camp secretly hidden from foes? What were these skills of invisibility they had, enabling them to watch over the forest, unseen all the while? How did they defend themselves, cook, heal their wounds and spend their leisure time? We’ll have opportunities to explore these age old secrets of the woodland life and adventures over the week, while delving into the classic tale of Robin Hood and his band of brave women and men, as handed down through the generations.

No animals will be trapped in the process and safety will be discussed and practiced throughout the camp.
