Formed in 1933, the Lancaster Archery Club has a rich history as one of the oldest Archery Clubs in the USA. Originally operating out of Williamson Park (now Lancaster County Park), LAC is one of the area’s most respected outdoor clubs. In 1953, Conservationist, Archer, and LAC Founding Member, Clayton Shenk was largely responsible for the PGC allowing archery equipment and then establishing a Fall Archery Hunting Season for deer in PA. Other past members include 50’s and early 60’s Eastern and PA State Champion Archer, Robert H. Kaufhold and many who’ve followed in their path of archery excellence.
