Medicine Bow is a 35 acre wilderness school tucked into the Chattahoochee National Forest in the mountains of north Georgia near Dahlonega. The owner and teacher, Mark Warren, guides his students toward their own unique relationship with nature through the Earthlore accumulated by the Native Americans.
Through the classes of Medicine Bow nature takes on new values as the source of food, medicine, craft materials, fire, tools, shelter and primitive weaponry. Learning through the patient methods of the American Indians, students encounter a vast academic growth as well as a spiritual one.

By request, I have started offering summer camps dedicated just to the skill and adventure of Archery. Pardon the boast, but there is no archery program like this one. I pour my 25 years of experience into the best instruction I have yet experienced in any other camp or school. But this serious teaching is balanced by games of adventure, quickness, and discretion such as were practiced in Native American communities as well as in Sherwood Forest.
