ince the first BOW event was held in Wisconsin in 1991, this exciting international program has expanded to 46 states and seven provinces with more than 80 workshops offered each year. The main goal of the BOW program is to provide women the opportunity to learn skills that encourage and enhance participation in outdoor activities, like hunting and shooting, fishing and boating, and non-harvest activities.

While Becoming an Outdoors-Woman is aimed primarily at women, it offers an opportunity for anyone 18 or older to learn skills needed for numerous outdoor activities. Please see Delaware's YouTube channel video: Becoming an Outdoors Woman 

The BOW Weekend features three half-day training sessions. Participants have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of course offerings during each of the sessions.

BOW Weekend included among the many hands-on courses during the weekend are archery, surf fishing, camping, shotgun shooting, basic boating, canoe/kayaking, hunting skills, flyfishing, nature photography, and various other outdoor activities. 

The instructors of these courses have been selected for their expertise as well as their ability to provide instruction in a safe, supportive, and non-competitive atmosphere.

A list of local resources is provided to all participants so that they can continue with their newly-learned skills beyond the BOW program.
