Welcome to Washington Outdoor Women (WOW)!

We teach so you can learn and grow – so you can gain confidence to explore the outdoors as a hands-on participant!

Our mission is to motivate you to continue learning. WOW instructors create a welcoming environment that will challenge you at the right pace.

WOW will offer longer classes to pair in-depth teaching with relevant and practical hands-on application.

Whether new to an outdoor skill or upping your knowledge base, WOW can help you gain confidence to go further when you get out there as  a Washington Outdoor Woman.

We look forward to seeing you in the outdoors!
