About BOW NS

BOW participants will attend four – 3½ hour, pre-selected courses of their choice, beginning Friday afternoon and ending Sunday morning.  The workshops have a short inside instructional portion before heading outside. 

We ensure that all participants enjoy a safe, positive, fun and educational experience and are taught in a ‘hands-on’ way.  A weekend workshop is around $250 and scholarships are offered on a need basis.
