A lot of churches hold Vacation Bible Schools to keep parishioners engaged during the summer months. Perrow Church in Cross Lanes, W.Va., conducts an archery camp.

And the Perrow Family Archery program isn’t just for youngsters. A typical Wednesday-evening session finds 3-year-olds and senior citizens standing beside each other on the firing line.

To ensure the presence of qualified instructors, 18 Perrow members took it upon themselves to obtain Basic Archery Instructor certification. Pretty cool.

The Sunday Gazette-Mail has the full story.
