Teaching aids for young kids ?

Saw my niece's kid over the weekend and he told me he's interested in archery. Now the problem is he lives halfway across the state and Mom + Dad are pretty much clueless. Are there any books or instruction manuals geared towards younger kids(8yrs old I think). We were going to give him my nephew's Micro Browning but we think he is a little to small for that yet so I'll probably get him something else for Xmas.

See if their local 4H has an archery club. Some of these clubs have good instructors & can get them off to a good start In the right direction. They are generally inexpensive also. Ours is 30 dollars for 3 Monday evenings a month for the school year. We also have 4 day summer camps for 75 dollars.
We also supply all the equipment to get them started. The more advanced children have their own equipment.

Business savy pro-shop owners will bend over backwards to help kids get into archery. It's their future buyers!. Have them go to a reputable archery dealership in the area, one that has lanes to shoot at. With winter coming, it's a great indoor activity for the kids. Many have winter leagues featuring either bulls eye targets or animal paper targets.

Wishing I was at camp!

I did archery in 4H as well, in the late 80s and early 90s. It was relatively inexpensive. The instructor was a school teacher who was quite an archer. This was in Beaver County, but there are groups all over the state.
