Becoming an Outdoors-Woman® Workshop
October 7-9, 2016
Becoming an Outdoors-Woman® (BOW – “bō”) is a nonprofit, educational program offering hands-on, outdoor workshops to adult women in the United States and Canada since 1991. Hosted by Camp Fire Green Country since 2003, BOW has called Camp Fire Camp Waluhili home for over 10 years.
All BOW Workshops emphasize a supportive environment for novices conducive to learning, making friends, and having fun. BOW is not a membership organization and no experience is necessary to participate. BOW requires teaching a balance of hunting and shooting; fishing and boating; and non-consumptive outdoor recreation activities such as campfire cooking, crafts, and outdoor skills. Specialty trips to utilize skills gained throughout BOW are offered throughout the United States, Canada, and abroad. For more information on BOW in other states or provinces, visit www.uwsp.edu/bow.
The Oklahoma BOW Workshop is held annually, usually on the first full weekend of October. The two-night outdoor conference, held at Camp Fire Camp Waluhili, offers nearly 40 classes on a variety of outdoor topics. In the past, class topics have included atlatl, muzzleloaders, archery, bow hunting, pine needle weaving, kayaking, paddleboarding, handguns, Dutch Oven cooking, rappelling, blacksmithing, canning, and much more.
