Best of Venture Vermont, 2017

Every summer, individuals and families participate in the annual Venture Vermont Outdoor Challenge. Rather like a state-wide outdoor scavenger hunt, participants complete a variety of outdoor activities to earn points. Once a participant reaches 250 points, the prize is a coin that offers free admission to any day-use state park, for all of the current year and all of next.

This year, more than 175 people participated from locations all across Vermont… and from a few other states too. One great thing about Venture Vermont is that participants are able to pick their own activities & go at their own pace. There is always something new to learn! Activities for 2017 included taking a bird walk, trail-running, tying knots, and going on a day-long adventure. Some challenges are park-based, but most can be completed anywhere, on vacation or in your backyard.

Thanks to everyone who participated. We hope to see you all again in 2018, for a new year of Venture Vermont with brand new challenges. Here are some photos from this year’s participants, to inspire you for next year.

Happy Venturing!
