Spots Available For Becoming An Outdoors-Woman Workshop

PRATT – There is still time to sign up for the Becoming An Outdoors-Woman (BOW) workshop, Sept. 16-18 at the Rock Springs 4-H Center in Junction City. While the deadline for enrollment is Sept. 4, the workshop, which is limited to 100 women, still has openings. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about enjoying the Kansas outdoors in a friendly, safe and welcoming environment, BOW is worth your time and money.

Each spring and fall, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism hosts this women-only workshop designed to give ladies age 18 and older a crash-course in outdoor life. BOW classes are taught by friendly and experienced instructors who pride themselves on providing a low-pressure atmosphere, and the best part is, participants can pick and choose which classes they attend. Sessions are provided on a multitude of topics, including archery, fly fishing, camping, rifle shooting, wild game cooking, canoeing, outdoor photography, geocaching, wilderness survival, and more. No experience is necessary to attend.

The cost to attend is $235 per participant and includes seven meals, two nights of lodging, instruction, supplies, and use of equipment. Three $100 scholarships are available for first-time participants, based on financial need.
