Welcome to NHBOW

Becoming An Outdoors-Woman is a workshop focused on the learning of outdoor skills - skills usually associated with hunting and fishing, but useful for many outdoor pursuits. Designed primarily for women, it is an opportunity for anyone 18 years of age or older, and is for you if: you have never tried these activities and want the opportunity to learn; you are a beginner looking to improve your skills; you are familiar with some outdoor activities, but would like to try your hand at new challenges; you are looking for the camaraderie of like-minded individuals.

We appreciate your interest in NH BOW!

We are pleased that so many women want to attend BOW events in New Hampshire. The number of spaces available is limited by staffing and funding.

Registration forms are posted on the website several days before registration opens, and registrations are only accepted by postal mail

For Fall BOW, registrations are numbered as they are received, but we also take into consideration: first-time participants, as well as repeat participants who bring a new person with them, get the highest priority.
