WOW Weekend workshop set

Friday, June 11, 2010

(Washington Wildlife Federation)

Grab your hiking boots and come join other women who share your backcountry interests and want to gain more confidence in the outdoors! Washington Outdoor Women’s popular outdoor skills workshop will be held September 17-19 at beautiful Camp River Ranch in Carnation, Washington.

You will engage in an empowering experience to sharpen your outdoor skills and improve your wilderness know-how. Invest in your personal growth and discover a new sense of self-reliance and awareness! Activity - based learning will rekindle that link to the outdoors you’ve been seeking.

WOW offers the right skills at the right pace! You choose three (3) four-hour classes and we provide expert instructors, all the equipment you’ll need, and the WOW ―can do! attitude.

Learning outdoor skills is best experienced through hands-on introduction, and WOW gives you the chance to explore new interests and get the latest tips on outdoor techniques! We also provide plenty of take- home resources and a wealth of networking opportunities for you to pursue.

Camp River Ranch is a beautifully natural site of old growth and mature canopy forest along the Tolt River. Lake Langlois is on the premises, allowing quick access to fishing, canoeing and kayaking.

Weekend activities are spread out across the camp and access is hilly and steep in places. The distance between classes, the Lodge and your cabin or tent can be up to ½ mile. Upon arrival, your car must be parked in a central location away from camp activities and remain parked for the entire workshop.

You will spend the weekend on foot to reconnect with the natural environment. Please bear this routine in mind. Be prepared to hike! Plan to be out and about all weekend with Washington Outdoor Women!
