Women's Wilderness Escape 2021 at
the NRA Whittington Center

The Women's Wilderness Escape is an introduction to the proper and safe use of firearms. As a women only event, you can rest assured that you will learn in a friendly non-threatening environment with women just like you. By the end of the week, you will have experience shooting and a working knowledge of over nine different types of firearms. 

Women's Wilderness Escape Attendee Shooting a Shotgun

Whether you are new to firearms or an experienced shooter, your experience and knowledge will grow to new levels as you nurture your curiosity and refine your skills under the helpful coaching and guidance of our expert instructors. During this event, participants are divided into groups and attend different activities while you have the safe opportunity to handle and shoot many different types of firearms.

July 18 - 24, 2021

$1,600 All Inclusive

The NRA Whittington Center is without a doubt the finest shooting complex in the nation. Its 33,000 acres nest among the scenic western mountains and high mesa country of New Mexico. You'll get to stay in the Founder's Cabins, eat in the dining facility, and anticipate the unscheduled early morning and evening escapades of the bear, deer, elk and antelope that call the NRA Whittington Center home.

Even though there will be a lot of different firearms to learn about, you will have plenty of time to soak in the beautiful southwestern mountain views and wildlife.
