-- Women interested in learning outdoor skills can get hands-on training during a Discover Nature Women Summer Workshop June 1 to 3 at the Windermere Conference Center at Lake of the Ozarks. Registration deadline is April 30.
The workshop provides an environment where women receive hands-on outdoor-skills training at the beginner level by selecting a group of four courses from those offered: archery, hunting, canoeing, outdoor cooking, firearms, camping, fishing, fly tying, map and compass reading and shotgun shooting.
Women attending for the first time are encouraged to attend the program a second year to complete four additional courses.
The special weekend is targeted to women 18 years and older and young women age 14 to 17 when accompanied by a woman 18 years or older. The workshop is free, but a $20 deposit is required at the time of registration and will be refunded at check in. There is no deposit fee for young women aged 14 to 17 when registered with an adult.
Participants are responsible for their own accommodations and meals, but dinner will be provided June 2. Various lodging options are available at the Windermere Conference Center.
