      Big Bay camp teaches women survival skills

      The bi-annual Be An Outdoorswoman event, or BOW for short continued its summer session Saturday at Big Bay Health Camp.

      Around 90 women from all across Michigan and even out-of-state learned or honed various outdoor skills such as camoflauge in hunting, firearms training and archery.

      Event officials say the event is meant to teach women the skills they'd need to survive in the wild and to broaden their horizons.

      "To hopefully step outside of their box and learn a new activity, a new skill that they can take back to the family or just to improve on one that they don't feel comfortable with. We really gear towards greeting the ladies to feel comfortable in whatever sport they choose to do in the outdoors and just to enjoy the Upper Peninsula" said event director Sharon Pitz.

      The event ends Sunday. The next one will be held in February at the same location.
