No Child Left Inside

The Connecticut State Parks have a plan. You will get out of your chair, go outside, and have fun. Leave the video games at home. They are not needed to play The Great Park Pursuit.

The Great Park Pursuit is an eight-week contest that will have you decoding clues, discovering parks and forests across the state and participating in fun activities and challenges – all for a chance to win fabulous prizes such as mountain bikes, camping equipment and more. The game kicks off on Saturday, May 6 at 10:00 a.m. at Dinosaur State Park in Rocky Hill.

Each week, you’ll be provided with a clue to one of Connecticut’s parks and forests. Additional hints will be provided here throughout the week to help you figure out which park you need to visit next. Depending on the week, you can visit the park anytime that week or on the following Saturday for a specified activity. At each park, you’ll be asked to complete an activity – hike, fish, participate in a scavenger hunt and more. When you complete the task, you’ll be given the clue to the next week’s park or forest.

By the end of the game, there will be no child left inside.
