Outdoors-Woman

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) Program

“I would like to share with all women that if you have been afraid to try any of the programs BOW offers you should just do it. Whatever apprehensions you have will be gone in the first few hours. The instructors are incredible and the women are all so friendly. We are all on equal ground—you won’t feel intimidated.”

The FWC sponsors workshops planned for women who want to spend a weekend learning a variety of outdoor skills.

“Becoming an Outdoors-Woman” workshops are slated for Ocala (Oct. 28-30, 2016) and West Palm Beach (Feb. 17-19, 2017).

The FWC invites women, 18 and older, to attend the workshops to learn or improve their outdoors skills and enjoy a few recreational activities. In four, three-and-a-half-hour sessions, workshops teach skills associated with hunting/ shooting, fishing and other outdoor (kayaking, outdoor cooking, etc.) activities at all levels of physical activity.

Although designed with women in mind, the workshop is open to anyone who wants to learn in a comfortable, non-threatening, non-competitive, hands-on atmosphere.

The workshops generally take place in the Ocala National Forest at the Ocala Conservation Center and the J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area in Palm Beach County at the Everglades Youth Conservation Camp.

They are rustic summer camp facilities with basic, modern amenities such as cabins and bath houses. Lodging is dormitory style, with meals served in the cafeterias. Sessions begin on Friday afternoon and end Sunday with lunch.

The cost is $200; however, there is a $50 discount if you register at least one month in advance and half price scholarships are available for low-income participants attending for the first time. Workshops are limited to 100 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Information about the workshop and registration is at MyFWC.com/BOW or by calling 561-625-5122.
