Sign up for the Becoming an Outdoors Woman Workshop
Ladies! Are you intrigued by the outdoors, but just don’t have the confidence or know-how to fly-fish, camp, kayak, or hunt? Then consider signing up for the Becoming an Outdoors Woman Workshop, held from April 25 through 27 at Friendly Pines Camp in Prescott. There are still a few spaces left!
More than 30 courses are offered at the workshop to women 18 and older, regardless of experience. As program coordinator Linda Dightmon says, you just need to have a little bit of desire to do something you’ve never had a chance to do.
Offered courses include: wildlife photography, birding, canoeing, kayaking, rappelling, hiking, horsemanship, archery, fly-fishing, Dutch oven cooking, and shooting. All courses are taught throughout the day by experts. Evening entertainment includes night hikes, fly tying, fashion shows, wild game tasting, and motivational speakers.
“BOW is about much more than hunting and fishing or even camping and paddling,” Dightmon says. “It is all about learning to appreciate our wild lands and wildlife and how to help conserve them. It’s about learning a new skill or conquering an old fear. It’s about meeting like-minded women and making new friends. It could be all about learning a lot more about you.”
Workshop admission is $245, and includes classes and materials, meals, and lodging. Participants are housed in rustic cabins equipped with showers and bathrooms. The workshops begin at noon on Friday and end after noon on Sunday.
