Do you eagerly anticipate Camporee?  Do you wish your troop camping events would never end?  Then Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) is for you!

BOW is a three day workshop designed for women ages 18 years or older. The workshop offers hands-on instruction in a fun and non-threatening learning environment. Participants choose from over 50 courses such as backyard wildlife, rock climbing, camp cooking, map and compass, camping, mountain biking, shooting sports (pistol, rifle, shotgun, muzzleloader, as well as gun safety), fishing, hunting, canoeing, nature photography, nature crafts, archery, ATV handling, bird watching, motor boat handling, and more.

Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is held twice each year. The next workshop is March 6-8, 2009, at the Alabama 4H Center near Columbiana in Shelby County.  Cost for the weekend adventure is $199 and covers meals, lodging, program materials and instruction. All instructional equipment is provided. For additional information about Becoming an Outdoors-Woman contact:

I've been twice, and I have a reservation for March. I don't have a roommate & would love to have a GS one! Let me know if you decide to go. The best classes fill first, so decide soon.

I will be attending for the first time. If you would like to room with me email me at
