The Get Outdoors Challenge is back for the summer! 

From June 1-Aug. 14, complete as many activities as possible from the challenge checklist, then fill out the patch request form by Aug. 31. 

Complete the required amount of activities for your grade level. If this is your first challenge, you’ll earn the main patch. If you've already earned the main patch from a previous challenge, you'll earn the summer leaf.
