Although the question "What do women want?" will continue to be pondered for millennia to come, the answer is simple: We want a long weekend's getaway. NRA's Women's Wilderness Escapes are purpose-built to do just that, providing women of all experience levels with an outdoor adventure that builds skills, fosters fellowship and refreshes the soul. Your NRA has three Women's Wilderness Escapes for 2018: One in Pennsylvania, one in Wyoming and one at the incomparable NRA Whittington Center in New Mexico, so there's one within striking distance for pretty much everyone in the Lower 48. Each of the WWEs is all-inclusive—lodging, meals and supplies are all covered by your registration fee. They're also designed to be a supportive environment where women can learn from one another as well as NRA-certified instructors in safe firearms handling and outdoorsmanship...without sacrificing the creature comforts that the less rugged among us prefer. Whether you're looking to increase your own skills or shopping for the perfect gift for a woman in your life, you just can't go wrong with an NRA Women's Wilderness Escape. Which one is right for you? Read on to find out!
