CONCORD, N.H. — Women interested in learning outdoor skills in a beautiful setting can learn about New Hampshire’s fall Becoming an Outdoors-Woman weekend workshop, which will take place September 7-9, 2018, at Rockywold / Deephaven Camps on Squam Lake in Holderness, N.H.
The brochure is now available for download at www.nhbow.com. See a short video about the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman experience: youtu.be/K6tFoRSON50.
Participants select four sessions from more than 30 different outdoor skills workshops, including archery, fishing, fly fishing, camping, field dressing game, hiking, kayaking, rifle, shotgun, nature photography, outdoor survival, campfire cooking, mountain biking, map and compass, and more.
The workshop fee of $335 includes two nights of lodging, plus all meals, instruction and equipment use. Participants must be age 18 or older.
New for the 2018 Fall Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop is a more flexible way to register! Registrations will now be accepted by mail, email, fax, or walk-in. In the spirit of being fair to all, Fall BOW registration will occur by random lottery. Prospective participants can take advantage of a three week pre-lottery registration period from June 4-22, 2018 with the lottery being held the following week. Registrations will also be accepted after the lottery as there may be space available. These slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
“Our participants have a lot of fun learning in the company of other women,” said Kim Proulx, who coordinates the program for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. “They are truly motivated when they see that outdoor recreation can add such an exciting new dimension to their lives.”
New Hampshire’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program is co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (www.wildnh.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (www.nhwf.org).
