>Attention adult women. Did you ever want to learn how to shoot skeet, or paddle a canoe? Would you like to learn how to present a fly to rising trout? Maybe you would like to try archery or Dutch oven cooking. Do you have a fear of heights? Sign up for the rappelling class and conquer it! The September 2019 Becoming and Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop is now accepting registrations. This popular program is sponsored the Arizona Wildlife Federation in partnership with the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
The workshop introduces women to outdoors skills in an enjoyable, non-threatening environment with expert instructors. Classes are held during the day, and the evenings are filled with fun and entertainment like night hikes, fly tying, and motivational speakers.
Some classes offered include Horsemanship, First aid in Backcountry, Birding and Rappelling & Field Dressing Big Game. There are over 30 different classes for participants to choose from. Two new classes are Art in Nature and AZ Wildflowers.
“BOW is about much more than hunting and fishing or even camping and paddling,” says Linda Dightmon, a coordinator for the program. “It is all about learning to appreciate our wild lands and wildlife and how to help conserve them. It is all about learning a new skill or conquering an old fear. It is all about meeting like-minded women and making new friends. It could be all about learning a lot more about you.”
Class materials, food and lodging are all included in the $275 registration fee. Horsemanship, Horsemanship 102 and Ropes Challenge have an additional fee of $50/each. Print your registration at September 6-8 Registration Packet
Participants stay in rustic cabins, but there are showers and bathrooms in each cabin. One great thing about this camp is that a woman can try a new sport without buying all of the equipment. The only thing the participant needs to bring is her personal stuff, a good attitude and a willingness to learn.
