Join the RI Great Outdoors Pursuit 2016!

[ 0 ] June 9, 2016 |

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.

Check out the Great Outdoors Pursuit website for more information and season schedule for the rest of the terrific events through the summer, and keep in the loop on Facebook!
