Don’t miss the fun and adventure of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshop April 25-27 at Friendly Pines Camp in Prescott. Space is limited for this popular all-inclusive women’s’ weekend in the pines, so reserve a spot now. BOW is sponsored by The Arizona Wildlife Federation in partnership with the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
Horsemanship, outdoor photography, birding and hiking are just a few of the classes offered. Learn and practice archery, fly-fishing, Dutch oven cooking, shotgun, rifle, and pistol shooting. Choose from more than 30 different workshops and classes than range from relaxing to adrenaline-pumping. BOW provides the equipment, so guests can try new sports and skip the expense of buying equipment.
The BOW workshop introduces women to outdoors skills in a relaxed, non-threatening environment with expert instructors. Classes are held throughout the day. Evenings are filled with fun and entertainment like happy hour, campfires, night hikes, fly tying, presentations and motivational speakers.
“BOW is about so much more than hunting and fishing, or camping and paddling,” said program coordinator Linda Dightmon. “It’s all about learning to appreciate our wild lands and wildlife and how to help conserve them. It’s about learning a new skill or conquering an old fear. It’s about meeting like-minded women and making new friends. It could be all about learning a lot more about you.”
Guests stay in rustic cabins outfitted with electricity, bathrooms, showers, sinks and bunk beds. Food, lodging, class materials, sports equipment and expert instruction are all included. Pack a sleeping bag, personal stuff, a good attitude and an eagerness for learning.
The cost of this all-inclusive weekend of discovery and adventure is just $245. Reservations are still available, but traditionally sell out well in advance. Whether this is a solo weekend, a girls-get-away, or a family affair, guests leave with new skills and great memories.
