Summer Camp

Unfortunately, Summer Camp 2020 is cancelled due to COVID-19.

A message from John Cho:

I bring sad news in these desperate times. As many of you predicted, the conditions of the COVID-19 cases are getting worse. Keeping our distance and sheltering in place is our first line of defense in battling against this disease and should be our top priority. To make sure that these measures are taken seriously, the University has confirmed the cancellation of all in-person summer camps.
Though our hopes were a quick resolution to these difficult times, we must face reality and focus on the essentials of our lives which are our health and wellbeing. I pray that everyone stays healthy and takes serious precautions towards this pandemic. It is not an understatement to say that it is a matter of life and death. We must hold onto hope knowing that good times will come back.
I will be praying for every single one of you.

Run entirely by the students of the Stanford Archery Team, Archery Summer Camp is the best archery day camp in Palo Alto!

We welcome both beginners and experienced archers. At the start of the camp, students are divided into two groups, Novice and Experienced, based on their archery experience and competitive goals. The Novice group is intended for kids who are new to the sport and looking for a positive first experience with archery. The Experienced group is designed as a competition training camp that focuses not only on shooting form but also other critical parts of archery like mental resilience and being comfortable with shooting for score. Archers currently and regularly involved in Stanford Archery's JOAD or Private Lessons programs should sign up for the Experienced camp.

During the camp, students will learn and improve on their archery skills. Students will also receive instruction on other archery essentials such as self-analysis, troubleshooting, how to score, and tournament etiquette. Additional activities will include traditional summer camp activities to cool down while not shooting as well as a day of fun shoots (balloons, stuffed animals, competing in teams, etc). Because of the excellent student-to-counselor ratio, the specific camp activities can be tailored to the attending archers. Please contact us at if you have specific requests - we're happy to accommodate!
