Parent Leadership

Support our youth programs by becoming part of our volunteer parent leadership group. The pack stewards the education and well being of all of our young students through organizing fundraising, gear donations, study groups, and ride share transportation needs. 


Resource List

The Pond is our live updated resource list for both parents and students. It includes links to quality inexpensive gear, DIY projects, instructional videos, BOWS safety manuals, and curriculum resources from all our classes. It is regularly updated and contributed to by instructors, parents, and students.

The Calendar

That thing with an extra day every 4 years... cuz that makes sense.

The youth mentorship calendar shows only the dates for workshops and activities relevant to our youth programs. It includes both Fox Walkers weekend dates and stand-alone after school workshop dates. To register for classes select  Fox Walkers or Stand-Alone Workshops from the main menu dropdown list.

BOWS is a queer owned and operated business. We welcome students of all race, nationality, sex, gender, religion, sexual preference, relationship style, age, and ability. Nature is for everyone.
