Looking for a challenge? Consider the 2014 Kentucky State Park’s Family Adventure Quest that you complete at your own pace. This year’s quest will be built around KY State Parks’ 90th anniversary, as well as the 280th Birthday of Daniel Boone, so expect to pick up some historical tidbits along the way!
Challenges will take your team to various parks and historic sites in search of your next adventure and photo op. While some challenges will require seeking answers through park visits, most will require use of a digital camera. In order to be eligible for prizes upon completion, Quest photos will need to be submitted in electronic format on CD.
The more you complete, the more you win!
Park gift cards: 25 correct = $50 or 20 correct for $25!
Every team that turns in at least 10 completed quests will receive a certificate for a free lodge room stay (Sun. – Thurs. nights) and passes to park museums!
Download a registration form today or call 1-800-255-7275 to request a registration form by mail.
Registration fee of $15 (2-6 people/team) gets you:
• Information packet containing your challenges
• Family Adventure Quest Jute Tote Bag
• Kentucky State Park compass/flashlight keychain
Only those correctly completing the challenges are eligible for prizes.
Photos submitted as part of this challenge become the property of KY State Parks.
