TSP Challenges Families to Get Outside for Prizes

February 11, 2016  |  Permalink

Tennessee State Parks recently launched a year-long “Adventure Challenge” where families and individuals are encouraged to get outside across the state.

In this free program, participants earn points based on different adventures. The challenges include hiking a new trail, attending an interpretive program, getting a stamp in your Tennessee State Park Passport, and much more.

Teams can be composed of families, groups or an individual – pets are welcome to join, too. The goal is to offer unique opportunities to engage with the outdoors, and be active and healthy.

“The goal of this program is to get families who are already enjoying our parks to add new parks and challenges to their list,” said Deputy Commissioner for Parks and Conservation Brock Hill. “After this cold winter and spring on the horizon, we are trying to spread the word now so families can start planning weekend getaways.”

Participants must upload a photo of them or their team engaging in one of the Adventure activities on the Tennessee State Parks Adventure Challenge Facebook page in order to earn points. Teams have until Dec. 15, 2016 to earn as many points as possible to exchange them for prizes.

To join the Challenge, email family.challenge@tn.gov and let your adventure begin! More information can be found at www.tnstateparks.com/activities/adventure-challenge.
