Aim for the future with our YMCA archery classes! Our beginner and intermidate class gradually teaches skills, patience, and confidence. The Advanced class covers more in-depth skills, care of equipment and essential gear, compettiion commands, and other skills. The advance class is invite only, or you may audition for the class (call Abby Biser 508.435.9345 x104 to set up a time). 

Our classes are mulit-age. Adults are invited to join the appropriate class. We hope to one day have so many adults involved that we might be able to have an adult archery club! See you soon!

If you love to act, like telling jokes, or just want to laugh, come join us for an Improv Comedy Extravaganza! We’ll spend the afternoon playing games, creating scenes, and learning techniques for acting without a script. Whether you’ve acted before, or you just want to give improvisation a try, we hope you’ll join us! The Extravaganza is open to children, teens, adults, and families of all ages.

Whether you’re a budding novelist or just learning to write, we hope you’ll join us for an afternoon of literary exploration! Tea and Tales is open to children, teens, adults, and families of all ages.
