Outdoors Women at Campfire

This program focuses on the learning of outdoor skills - skills traditionally passed from father to son - but valuable to anyone wishing to enjoy outdoor pursuits.

A sampling of workshop offerings may include basic fishing, beginning shotgun, kayaking, map & compass, reading the woods, archery, pond and stream adventures, nature photography, martial arts, outdoor and game cooking, edible plants and much more.

Designed primarily for women, it is an opportunity for anyone 18 years of age or older who may have never tried these activities, but wants an opportunity to learn. Co-sponsored by local conservation / sporting groups .
