GCAA is a non-profit organization that was established in 1984 with the stated purpose “to foster and perpetuate all phases of archery with a spirit of good fellowship among fellow archers.” GCAA has been able to accomplish this purpose by offering a 3D archery range, free to the public to enjoy. Our 3D archery range is just one way that GCAA continues to help the art of archery grow. As a GCAA member, you are part of a community of like minded archers and bow hunters creating relationships that last a lifetime. Through these relationships we are able to pass on the traditions of archery to generations to come.
With the help of the Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District GCAA has been able to further instill our values of archery to the youth of Grand County and visiting guests. FVMRD brings youth groups to the range for weekly classes supported and taught by GCAA officers and volunteers. We believe that teaching youth discipline, determination, and life lessons through archery, will fulfill our organizations purpose.
To help us perpetuate a passion for archery, please consider becoming and member or sponsor. Hope to see you on the range soon!
