Sherwood Forest is a member of the National Archery Association. Sherwood Forest archery is a Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) Program open to Juniors through Seniors. Quality lightweight one-piece recurve bows serve as the camp’s one design bow. Training takes place daily at Sherwood’s archery range by certified instructors. Superlative archers are recognized each year at Trophy Night.

Sherwood’s program is intended to provide the necessary guidance for the recreational archer. The JOAD program is also an achievement program, a system of qualifying rounds and achievement levels designed to provide a challenge for youth in archery achievement. Each archer advances at his or her own pace.
