BOW Destinations: Specialty Trips to Special Places

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) is a non-profit, educational program offering hands-on workshops to adult women. We encourage a supportive environment conducive to learning, making friends, and having fun. No experience is necessary and BOW is for women of all ages and fitness levels.


The “Original BOW” workshop format  is a 3-day, multi-course event with more than 20 classes to choose from including fly fishing, archery, shotgun and rifle shooting, wildlife habitat, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, camping, nature photography, basic fishing, boat and trailer and more.

Several states also offer Beyond BOW” opportunities which might include 1-3 day events with a single topic like a day at the shooting range, charter fishing, kayaking on a local lake, a weekend of camping, or an archery clinic.

“BOW Destinations” are speciality trips to special destinations.
