Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) introduces women to outdoors skills in an enjoyable, non-threatening environment. At $240 per person, this program may be one of the best bargains around.

Expert instructors teach women skills such as canoeing, camping, using a compass, fly fishing, Dutch oven cooking, archery, and many more. Classes are held during the day, and evenings are filled with fun and entertainment like night hikes, music, and storytellers.

Scheduled for April 3-5, 2009 and again August 14-16, 2009, the program is held at Friendly Pines Camp near Prescott. Meals are provided, and participants sleep in cabins. The event starts at noon on Friday and ends at noon on Sunday.

“Even though this workshop is geared toward novices, there is still plenty to learn and do for women with a little more outdoor savvy,” says Linda Dightmon, the BOW coordinator for the Arizona Wildlife Federation (AWF). “BOW is a great venue to network with like-minded women and maybe find a new fishing buddy.”

AWF sponsors the program in partnership with the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Enrollment is open to all women 18 and older.
