Becoming An Outdoors-Woman

Becoming An Outdoor's Woman Logo  

The WV Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program encourages women to participate in outdoor activities. We host two weekend workshops a year designed for hands-on training in an atmosphere where women can have fun learning new skills. The BOW program is looking for women (and men) who are at least 18 years old and are interested in improving on an existing skill, learning a new skill, and/or are looking for the camaraderie of like-minded individuals. Each person is able to participate in four half-day courses along with special activities each night. Classes include: hiking, biking, camping, shooting, fishing, and outdoor cooking.

Future workshop dates are:

  • Spring BOW will be at North Bend State Park April 10-12, 2015  (registration form)
  • If you think you might like to participate in these workshops or know of someone who would, please contact:
