"Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" (BOW) offers outdoor skills workshops specifically for women 18 years of age and older, although men are welcome to participate. The workshops enable women to learn about a wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities in a casual, non-threatening environment. The classes are designed to be as as hands-on as possible, giving participants enough knowledge to further pursue their interests once the workshop is over.

Fall Workshop

Our large workshop is the Fall workshop which is held every year in late October-early November. During the Fall workshop, we offer over 30 different classes including firearm safety, preserving the harvest, fly fishing, and more! In addition to classes, we offer evening programs like a game feast, nature presentations, and night hikes.

Beyond BOW Workshops

In addition to the Fall workshop, we also offer Beyond BOW events. Beyond BOW workshops last from one to three days but are focused on specific activities. Beyond BOW workshops may include a 2-day canoe trip down the Potomac River with an overnight camp out, a 1-day fishing clinic, or an outdoor survival skills weekend. Each workshop we offer is tailored to showcase the resources and opportunities available in that area. Below are some examples of previous workshops.

 

Beyond BOW KayakThe emphasis of BOW and Beyond BOW is on the enjoyment and camaraderie that goes along with outdoor recreation, whether hunting, fishing, hiking, or boating
