What can I expect from a "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" workshop?
Workshops span a weekend, typically Friday noon through Sunday noon. The weekend is divided into 4 sessions, You pick the classes in which you'd like to participate. Around 8 classes per session are offered.

"I came away from the course with the confidence that hey, I can do this! Not to mention the opportunity to meet folks who share similar interests."
Karen E., Copperas Cove

Class topics are diverse and are divided into three categories: 1) hunting & shooting sports, 2) fishing & water sports, and 3) 'other' outdoor topics (e.g., camping, cooking, bird watching, plant identification). Classes are taught with a "hands-on" approach and equipment is provided!

"BOW really taught me what I needed to know." Mary J., Euless

Workshops are held at outdoor camps and/or learning centers. The atmosphere is "outdoorsy" but comfortable. Participants are housed in bunkhouses, cabins or dormitories with modern conveniences like AC, toilets, hot showers, etc.

"It was great fun, and hopefully it will lead to a lasting source of pleasure for me. It truly was a rewarding experience." Nancy F., Austin
