Outdoorswoman Participant Comments
From the 2009 BOW Weekend in Becket
...My sister and I attended the BOW weekend this year for the first time. The facilities were perfect, your staff is totally devoted and supremely enthusiastic and organized, the whole weekend agenda was jam-packed with great stuff, and the workshops (and instructors) were fantastic. Karen and I haven't had this much fun learning new and exciting outdoors skills and experiences in a long time (and we thought we were pretty avid outdoorswomen already)!
Birding Class Participant -- The best part of this session was the peace and serenity. I learned the bird calls I have heard for years and had not known. Even with my disability, I was able to keep up and enjoy the woodland birds.
Safe Firearms Handling Class Participant -- This class was terrific.
I was very nervous about handling guns and this class allayed
my fears. I really appreciated the instructors' hyper-conscious safety

"I talked my Mom into coming with me this year and she had a blast....thanks so much for putting together such a great program and getting "not so outdoors-type woman" out there...."
"I got so much more confidence in my ability to do some new things. I came back relaxed, tired and rejuvenated!"
"Everyone was so welcoming when I arrived and I don't remember any vacation that has been so comfortable for me as a single person in a new place amongst strangers."
