Course Description

Archery is one of L.L.Bean's most popular Discovery Courses for adults and children, making it a great outing that everyone in your family will enjoy.

After brief introductions and a safety talk, you'll receive helpful advice on the proper technique for correctly holding a bow and releasing an arrow for optimal accuracy and precision. With guidance and support from our friendly, expert instructors, you'll practice hitting targets with a recurve bow.

And always remember, our staff will be more than happy to answer any questions you have about the exciting sport of archery.

All necessary archery equipment is provided.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
