WOW Tentative Schedule 2019


The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) is proud to deliver a fun, affordable, one-of-a-kind program geared toward women who are interested in fishing and hunting but do not know how to get started. Established in 1994, the program is now higher in demand than ever! Every September the OFAH welcomes 80 women to gather at the Kinark Outdoor Centre near Minden for three days of action-packed adventure in the outdoors. This weekend-long excursion is exclusively for women and is the only provincial program of its kind.

The Facilities

The Kinark Outdoor Centre is located on its own private lake surrounded by 243 acres of wetlands and mature forest. This facility offers clean cabins with two-piece bathrooms located close to a shower house, a large dining hall, recreation center, sauna, and swimming area. The well-trained staff cook gourmet meals on site, have snacks and refreshments available at all times and can accommodate any dietary needs.

Come on your own or bring a friend. Participants come from all over Ontario, many of whom do not know anyone else attending.
