COLUMBUS, OH - The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has opened registration for the inaugural Ohio Women’s Outdoor Adventures weekend hosted by the ODNR Division of Watercraft.
The weekend will take place August 22-24, 2014, at the newly remodeled Burr Oak State Park resort in the southeast Ohio town of Glouster. Burr Oak State Park blends luxury, modern conveniences with the wilderness spirit of Ohio. The 2,593-acre park offers a stunning lake, wooded hills and valley farms.
Ohio Women’s Outdoor Adventures is open to all women, even girls 12 or older accompanied a parent or guardian. The workshops focus on a variety of outdoor skills. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to operate and trailer a power boat, hone their skills in kayaks and canoes, or try the latest watersport – stand up paddleboarding.
Other activities include archery, geocaching, and fishing, as well as optional activities like bonfires, night hikes, and a BB gun range.
A registration fee of $195 covers all workshops, plus two nights lodging (choose from resort lodge suites or cottages), five meals, and snacks. The program is first-come, first-served, and is limited to 80 participants.
