Figure 1.--This German Scout in 1977 is engaged in archery showing that it was a common activity for European Scouts.
A staple of summer camps, including Scout camps is archery. HBC is unsure to what extent it has been persued by other youth groups. Archery was a popular activity in Victorian England and persumably other European countries. Early American Scouts persued archery as it fit into the focus on outdoors camping and wood craft. I'm less sure to what extent it was persued by Scouts in other countries.
