July 17th-19th, 35 Amherst College employees participated in the Hitting Your Targets - Archery at Work program hosted by the Office of Human Resources. The sessions were held at Bramble Hill Farm and were facilitated by Amherst Archery Academy.

We all have goals at work and in our lives. These "targets" can sometimes feel easy, and sometimes feel very difficult to achieve. Archery at Work allows participants to combine learning a skill (how to shoot a bow and arrow) with discovering how to set goals and hit your targets, all while having some fun with colleagues from across campus.
