The BOW program offers a 3-day Summer BOW workshop with a variety of different classes taught over the course of the weekend. Participants attend 4 classes of their choice. Classes are taught by volunteer instructors who provide a supportive, safe, and non-competitive learning environment. Workshops are held in a camp setting. The registration fee includes your lodging, meals, 4 classes, instructional materials, and equipment.
Beyond BOW workshops are another opportunity for women to learn outdoor skills. Beyond BOW is anything we offer that is not the traditional 3-day BOW workshop. They may be “next step” classes for women who have completed a beginner class at a BOW workshop. Or they may be one-day, one-subject classes.
