Becoming An Outdoors-Woman Workshop To Be Held In September Near Grafton, Illinois

This past weekend, I read a great article on the Chicago Tribune website about this state’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program. Never heard of BOW? From the Illinois Department of Natural Resources website:

Becoming An Outdoors-Woman (BOW) is a program designed to give women introductory experiences and instruction in various outdoor activities. Activities range from the shooting sports to outdoor recreation to nature crafts and skills. Program instructors emphasize the basics in instruction while providing information on equipment, associated clubs and/or organizations, and additional training opportunities.


“Becoming an Outdoors-Woman 20th Anniversary”
YouTube Video

According to that Tribune piece, Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshops are offered in 39 states and six Canadian provinces, with Illinois having hosted the events since 1995.

The IDNR website shows the next BOW workshop in the state is scheduled to take place from September 25 to 27 at Pere Marquette State Park outside of Grafton.

As of today, 65 of 85 spots have already been filled.

One look at this workshop’s itinerary helps to explain why:

• Archery
• Backpacking
• Canoeing
• Firearms and Firearm Safety
• First Aid (Wilderness)
• Fishing
• Hiking
• Hunting
• Leather Works
• Native Peoples Skills
• Native Plants and Landscaping
• Nature Jewelry
• Orienteering
• Parasailing
• Photography (Outdoors)
• Power Tools
• Rappelling
• Shooting Sports
• Survival Skills
• Woodcarving
• Zip Lining

Those lucky ladies!

The workshop fee is $175, which “includes class instruction, program materials, giveaways, use of class equipment and supplies, six meals and lodging.”

Head on over to the BOW page here on the Illinois Department of Natural Resources website for more information and to sign up for the September workshop.
