Artemis Training Curriculum
Together with a circle of friends, girls discover connections to their own power, each other, and the world around them, using the Greek Goddess Artemis and archery as metaphor. On this Journey, they focus on a goal, harness the power of concentration and the strength of their bodies, explore nature and ancient stories, help the world, and learn archery. In Circle and at home, girls earn Ribbons to mark their accomplishments. These Ribbons are then woven around hand-made bows, collected from the woods, and given to each girl at a final ceremony.
