The El Dorado Hills Bowmen “Try Archery” event is one of nearly 2,000 events taking place nationwide during the month of June. This is one of only thirty archery focused Olympic Day events, providing the local community with a family-friendly activity, where you can meet decorated Junior Olympians, community officials, and experience archery first hand.

Around the world, more than 160 countries take part in the annual celebration. Olympic Day, created in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games, focuses on the Olympic values and ideals such as fair play, perseverance, respect and sportsmanship.

We are actively seeking additional participation from the local El Dorado Hills and regional archery community.
