Outdoor Campus to host Women’s Try It Day

A news release from the state Department of Game, Fish and Parks:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The Outdoor Campus in Sioux Falls will host its annual Women’s Try It Day from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. CDT on Saturday, July 17.

The open-house event offers women of all ages a variety of outdoor activities, including such things as archery, paddling, geocaching, BB-gun shooting and outdoor cooking. 

“It’s a special day for women who are eager to sample different outdoor activities,” said Alison Eden, The Outdoor Campus volunteer coordinator. “They can come and try one activity or all of them. It’ll be a lot of fun, and it should inspire a sense of community along with a true love for nature. This time though, the guys have to stay home!”

Located at 4500 South Oxbow Ave. in Sertoma Park, Women’s Try It Day is free, and pre-registration is not required. For more information about the event, e-mail TOC@state.sd.us or visit www.outdoorcampus.org.
