Women can choose their own adventure at an outdoor sports workshop with courses ranging from shotgun shooting to fly-fishing.
The 18th annual Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is May 3-5 at Ross Camp in West Lafayette. The workshop is open to women ages 18 and older and limited to 100 participants.
Registration begins March 1 at IndianaBOW.com and costs $185.
The program is designed for women to learn outdoor skills in a relaxed, low-pressure environment. Participants will choose four activities from more than two dozen offerings, including archery, survival 101, orienteering, and learning to hunt small game. New for 2013 is a class on kayaking.
The workshop is for women who have never tried these activities, but have hoped for an opportunity to learn; who have tried them but are beginners hoping to improve; or who know how to do some of the activities, but would like to try new ones.
Women who enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded individuals and who seek time away to reconnect with nature are also prime candidates for BOW.
