A BOW workshop is for you if…

  • You have never tried these activities, but have hoped for an opportunity to learn.

  • You are a beginner who hopes to improve your skills.

  • You know how to do some of these activities, but would like to try your hand at some new ones.

  • You enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded individuals and you seek time away to reconnect with nature.

BOW offers partial scholarships for women aged 18 years and older who are full-time residents of Montana and who have not previously attended a BOW event. These scholarships enable women to participate in BOW who otherwise may not be able to afford the full registration fee. Recipients may receive only one scholarship in a lifetime.
