Women's Winter Camp

Posted: Updated:

A group of women set out into the wilderness last weekend.

North Dakota's Game and Fish Department united beginners with experts at Lake Metigoshe to teach them how to get back to the basics.

Bonnie Campo was there to capture some of the fun.

(Nancy Bolt, Game and Fish Coordinator) "This weekend is our tenth annual becoming an outdoors woman winter event. So, what we have up here is fifty-five women that we are teaching outdoor skills to. Everything from snowshoeing and tracking, cross-country skiing, winter birding. We are doing winter survival, so they are making snow caves, and learning how to start fire from what they might have in their pockets, what they can find around them."

(Rachel Schieve and Alecia Pulver, Participants) "We did winter survival this time. We will do dark-house spear fishing and fur-handling tomorrow, and it will be a good time, and we are excited for both of those. If there is anybody that wants to do it, just grab a friend and come up. It's not intimidating at all, it's real welcoming and it's fun, and I definitely think there are people here at all levels too, so I recommend coming."

(Nancy Bolt, Game and Fish Coordinator) "You just make new friends, and you make new friends that have the same things that you want to do. You can find plenty of ladies that you can do this stuff with, and I think that's it. It's finding the same comradery amongst women that like to do those things."

The program is called Becoming an Outdoors Woman and is held twice a year-- Summer and Winter.

Participants pay around one hundred and thirty dollars for room, board and equipment.
