Destination Recreation: Venture Vermont Outdoor Challenge

Posted: Updated:

This week's Destination Recreation will keep your family busy all summer with outdoor fun!

The Miller family from Westford has VIP gold coins from two years of completing the Venture Vermont Outdoor Challenge.

It's put on by the Vermont State Parks.

They say it's like a big scavenger hunt. Families take part in different activities like climbing a tree or building a boat and then get points for it.

"It gave me a lot of ideas that I wouldn't necessarily thought of on my own. And it's a way to bring some of the learning into being outside but to make it a really fun experience in the process," says Lori Miller.

"It has also given us a chance to explore more of Vermont and to get out and do things that i probably wouldn't have done much of like take the kids fishing because you get points for doing that and you also get extra points for making your own fishing pole," says Brian Miller.

When you reach 250 points, you submit a score sheet and photos and then receive a gold coin, which is good for free entry into state parks for the rest of this year and all of next year.

The challenge is happening now and goes until mid October.
