Designed primarily for women, BOW workshops are an opportunity for anyone, 18 years of age or older, who is interested in learning outdoor skills.

Over 40 hands-on classes are scheduled during the weekend workshop. Classes include: Firearms Safety, Fur Sewing, Fly Tying, Boating, Survival, Archery, Field Dressing, Spin Fishing, Shotgun, Fly Fishing, Map & Compass, Big Game Hunting, Geocaching, Rifle, Salmon Fishing, Chainsaws, Smoking Salmon, Canoeing, Trapping, and much more. All classes are hands-on and taught at the beginner level.

  • 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 already participate in some of these activities but would like to try some new ones.
  • You are looking for the camaraderie of like-minded individuals.
