2012 Olympic Day at Craftsbury Outdoor Center

Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Craftsbury, VT

Event Info:

June 27th, 2012, 1 - 4pm.  This free event will be celebrated in over 160 countries this year - including right here at the Center!

Much of the day is modeled after the Olympics you have watched on TV. Participating kids will be named to of one of six teams.  The afternoon will begin with an opening ceremony and torch lighting.  After an introduction to each sport, participants and the teams will have a chance to complete challenges such as canoeing, tennis, and track and field. No prior experience necessary-just come on over and have some fun! The day will wrap up with a closing ceremony and medals.

In addition to all the activities, kids will have the chance to meet Olympians past and present. Several of New England's top cross country skiers, including current US Ski Team and US Biathlon Team members will help lead activity stations.

The event is free, and designed for kids aged 9 to 14. We will need a parent or guardian present to complete a registration for each child at the 1pm start. All activities will be at Hosmer Point, just one mile north of the Craftsbury Outdoor Center on Lost Nation Road.  (Directions can be found at http://hosmerpoint.com/parents/directions-and-lodging). Kids should be ready to be outside and active all afternoon, so things like sunscreen, hats, and comfortable athletic footwear are important items to remember. A water bottle and a snack would be good ideas too.

We're looking forward to a great afternoon of fun - hope you can make it! And who knows, maybe we'll see one of these young athletes on a much larger stage sometime in the future!
