CONCORD — Women interested in learning outdoor skills in a beautiful setting can sign up for New Hampshire’s Fall Becoming an Outdoors Woman weekend workshop, which will take place September 6-8 at Rockywold / Deephaven Camps on Squam Lake in Holderness. The workshop fee of $395.00 includes two nights of lodging, plus all meals, instruction, and equipment use. Participants must be age 18 or older.

Participants select four sessions from more than thirty different outdoor skills workshops including: archery, fishing, fly fishing, camping, field dressing game, hiking, kayaking, rifle, shotgun, nature photography, outdoor survival, campfire cooking, mountain biking, map and compass, and more.

Registering for the 2019 Fall Becoming an Outdoors Woman workshop is easy and flexible! Registrations are accepted by mail, email, fax, or walk-in. In fairness to all, Fall BOW registrations will be selected by random lottery. Prospective participants can take advantage of a three-week pre-lottery registration period from June 3-21, with the lottery being held the following week. Registrations will also be accepted until August 1, as there may be space available after the lottery is held. These slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Our participants have a lot of fun learning in the company of other women,” said Kaitlyn Kelleher, who coordinates the program for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. “They are truly motivated when they see that outdoor recreation can add such an exciting new dimension to their lives.”
