Girl Scouts to host 'Shoot the Bow' recruitment event at Psalmond Recreation Center

Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia will host a recruitment event called “Shoot the Bow” at Psalmond Recreation Center on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 1–4 p.m. Girls in grades 2-12 who are not Girl Scouts are invited to attend. Those attending will receive archery instruction. The event is free with a $12 annual registration fee for Girl Scouts. Those interested in attending should contact Deidra Rivers at drivers@gshg.org or 706-327-2646 x 127 by February 18 to register.

As they play archery games, girls will learn the proper way to shoot a bow and learn the answer to questions like why the arrows have feathers and why they are different colors. Girls will earn their first Girl Scout award, an archery patch, and experience the thrill of learning a new skill, perhaps even hitting the bull’s eye.

Girl Scouts is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls in the world. Through Girl Scouting, girls learn more about themselves, connect with others and take action about things that are important to them. The exciting Girl Scout Leadership Experience builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
