Vermont State Parks 2015 Venture Vermont Outdoor Challenge

The Vermont State Parks invite you to participate in their 2015 Venture Vermont Outdoor Challenge, which will run from April 1, 2015 to October 15, 2015. The program involves an outdoor scavenger hunt for children and adults alike, and includes activities such as identifying amphibians, mapping GPS coordinates, and making camp supplies out of found materials.

Participants will rack up points by completing activities, marking them on a scorecard, and taking photographs. Those who reach 250 points will win day entry free of charge into all Vermont State Parks for the rest of the 2015 season and the entire 2016 season, as well as a VIP Gold Medal.

The Vermont State Parks are excited to include Bonus Activities this year, which will be posted on their Facebook page on a weekly basis, as well as many new activities throughout the Challenge. "This is one of our most fun programs that we get to do during the year," said Rochelle Skinner, Parks Sales and Service Manager. "Parents, if you're looking for great ways to get your whole family outside this summer, this is for you!"
