Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge 2017



Marsh-mellow roastings, scavenger hunts and sweet prizes!

September 18th through October 15th was the first annual participation of PENN in the Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge, Hosted by the Outdoor Foundation, a nonprofit committed to reconnecting millennials with the outdoors, and sponsored by REI, The North Face, Hydro Flask, and ENO. The Campus Challenge aimed to get students from more than 90 universities nationwide off the couch and into the wilderness. To participate, students simply downloaded the Campus Challenge app, joined their university’s team, and logged their outdoor activities during the Challenge to score points. Prizes for winners included national titles, free outdoor gear, and most importantly, bragging rights.

Over 500 Entries were made through out those three weeks, these were a few of our favorites!

Congratulations to all the winners of the daily and weekly prizes and thanks so very much to all those who participated and put Penn on the map as an active campus.

If you missed out this year there is always next year !
