Women’s outdoor workshop engages next generation, comes to camp in September

The Women and Girls Outdoor Workshop, or WOW, is planned for Friday to Sunday, Sept. 12 to 14, at Camp Waskowitz in North Bend.

Now in its 17th year, WOW’s mission is to engage the next generation and pass on traditions to new generations. The camp brings together women and girls ages 9 to 12 for a weekend of fishing, hunting, and outdoor skill education. Cost is $375.

Sixteen different classes will be offered throughout the weekend on skills such as archery, basic freshwater fishing, camping, cording, fly fishing and tying, hunting and tracking, Dutch oven cooking, map and compass reading, wilderness first aid, survival skills, outdoor photography, raising a backyard garden and raising backyard chickens, among others.

Partial scholarships, provided by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, are available.
