Get Outside Montana is committed to encouraging children and their families to be more physically active, and to enjoy the many recreational opportunities in Billings, Red Lodge and surrounding areas. GOM is the result of a collaboration of several conservation organizations, government agencies and local businesses. GOM is a back-to-nature event that is FREE and accessible for all ages. Participating families will function as a “team”, and are encouraged to engage in a friendly competition as they explore local recreational areas. Activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, camping, scavenger hunts, and geocaching will be featured.
Teams must consist of at least one person over the age of 18 and one person under the age of 18. Each week of the competition features several “guided” or “self-guided” events. A self-guided event allows teams to visit the designated park anytime during the 8-week event and engage in an activity on their own such as Frisbee golf or a scavenger hunt. Each team will receive a passport which will be used to track teams’ participation in the competition. When teams check-in at each guided event, they are awarded 5 points for their participation. Teams must provide proof of completion of self-guided park activities (e.g., a sketch or photograph) and will be awarded a point for each activity completed.
