Register to "Become an Outdoors Woman"

Indiana DNR Release:

Attention women who already love outdoor sports. Attention women would like to try them. Attention women who want to improve their ability to do them under expert supervision and instruction.

Your place is the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman workshop, April 29-May 1, at Ross Camp in West Lafayette.

The 17h annual workshop is limited to the first 100 women, 18 years old or older, who register at The fee is $175.

The program is designed for women to learn outdoor skills in a relaxed, low-pressure environment. Activities range from shooting clay targets, paddling a canoe, catching a trophy bass, becoming a campfire gourmet cook, making a fur hat, and spotting rare wild birds, to learning to call turkey.

Participants design their own outdoor experience to match their interests. 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 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.
