Last summer, I wrote a lot about Park Quest.
What's Park Quest, you ask? It's Maryland Dept. of Natural Resource's Brain Child where they present you with a "passport" that includes 24 state parks, each of which has a challenge for family teams to tackle. What a great way to get families out into the great outdoors. To learn more, you can go to the MD DNR website here: http://www.dnr.state.md.us/parkquest/index.asp To find out more about some of our team's antics last summer, you can click the "Park Quest" label below!
But, to get a great synopsis of one team's adventures, you will definitely want to go to Maryland's "Bay Weekly" link here to read about Team Bay Boughey's Park Quest perks: http://bayweekly.com/articles/good-living/article/park-quest-took-my-family-back-nature. Here, Heather Boughey gives you a quick run down on what it takes to form a Park Quest Team, and some insights from their outings. She'll also give you the quick commercial on how it lasts all summer--May 7th to Sept. 5th, with sign up being April 25th. She also gives away the good stuff some of us Quest-ers fear--with only space for 1000 families, you need to be quick to register as the spots fill up fast!
So definitely check it out because it's family fun and the stuff that memories are made of... but be sure to leave a spot for me!
