Ladies: Learn How To Become An ‘Outdoors Woman’

Register now for the “Becoming an Outdoors Woman” (BOW) workshop on Aug. 15-17 at Friendly Pines Camp near Prescott.

The program introduces women to outdoors skills in an enjoyable, non-threatening environment with expert instructors. Classes include horsemanship, outdoor photography, birding, hiking, archery, fly-fishing, shotgun/rifle/pistol shooting, and Dutch oven cooking, among others.

Evenings are filled with fun and entertainment, including night hikes, musicians, and motivational speakers. Participants stay in rustic cabins, but there are showers and bathrooms in each cabin, and a central dining hall for meals.

Equipment, materials, food and lodging are all included in the $235 registration fee. The only exception is the outdoor photography class, where participants will need to bring a camera. Enrollment is open to all women 18 and older.

The program is sponsored by the Arizona Wildlife Federation in partnership with the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
