Adventures

Adventures can be completed in any order. Teams can choose which adventures they want to do or don't want to do. Most adventures can be done only once. Adventures that can be done more than once are so noted. Some adventures are worth more points.

In some of the adventures, we refer to "style points and CC creds." You don't actually earn any points for these. They're our way of saying, "way to go!"

Keep returning to this page to see new adventures that may be added during the 2013 season.

Remember to take a photo or video that includes a team member and your team flag as Proof that your team completed an adventure!

Read how to provide Proof, here.
