The Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge is about school communities and student bodies joining together to see who can get the most people outside and active. It’s a Mother Nature meets March Madness-style competition where 57 schools from across the country will go head-to-head over six weeks. The school that gets the most people outdoors will win the National Outdoor Championship. They will also be recognizing the Outsider of the Year, the individual across all schools who logs the most outdoor activities, and the Most Outdoorsy Person, the individual on each campus that logs the most outdoor activities for their school. Support a school community, join the Challenge.
Follow the link to learn more. Yavapai College can earn $500 to go towards outdoor activities/improvements if we have 500 participants who sign up and log at least one outdoor activity!
I did it…..now it’s your turn! The Challenge runs until Oct. 17, so get out there and have some fun! In fact here are a couple of chances for you to do just that:
Friday 10/2 is North Wilson Mountain (note this has been changed from South Wilson Mountain due to the weather forecast….north route is cooler/shadier); Sunday 10/4, Loy Canyon (changed from Towel Creek, also because will be too hot with no shade). These are both challenging hikes with significant elevation gain, but oh, the views!! Well worth the effort. Let me know if you’d like to come along, and we’ll set a meeting place & time.
