June is Great Outdoors Month and the eighth annual Rhode Island Great Outdoors Pursuit is underway! All summer long, families are invited to camp, kayak, fish, hike, and shoot a bow and arrow at Rhode Island’s state parks while winning great prizes!
Here’s how it works: Participants register online (free!) and self-print a Pursuit Passport. At each free weekend event attended, “stamps” are earned for the Passport. Attend the finale on August 6 at Burlingame State Campground, and if you present stamps for at least 4 events, each stamp earns a raffle ticket to win prizes including bikes and camping equipment. Last year, more than 1,000 people joined the Pursuit.
The Great Outdoors Pursuit Kick-Off is Saturday, June 11 from 2:00 – 5:00 PM. Families may also choose to stay overnight for a special camping opportunity (pre-register here) with a campfire, s’mores, outdoor movie and stargazing.
