The Amazing Geo-Challenge on the Kenai is Back!
GET YOUR TEAM READY!
At Challenger Learning Center of Alaska (CLCA), we delight in relevant and innovative learning; our community events are no different! After a couple of years off and some rebranding, we are excited to bring back our seven-year running, famous geocache rally to support youth education! Renamed the Amazing Geo-Challenge on the Kenai, this year will be bigger and better than ever. We are throwing in new surprises, harder challenges, roadblocks, a banquet, and a partnership with The Kenai Chamber of Commerce, incorporating community involvement all around Alaska’s playground. Proceeds will support Challenger’s youth educational programs and the Chamber’s youth scholarship fund. We invite you to be a part of this epic day of adventure for CLCA’s eighth annual geocache event, a real-world outdoor treasure hunt filled with challenges and exciting twists, September 18, 2021.
The Amazing Geo-Challenge on the Kenai will kick the day off with a bang! Throughout the day, teams work together to solve strategic GPS and science challenges. Caches will take them all around the Kenai Peninsula, highlighting local businesses and what makes the central Peninsula great. We know you will not want to miss being a part of this community-wide, action-packed event. Challenger, as a non-profit, values the importance of community support and partnership. Therefore, we want to foster these positive relations, bringing community members and businesses together for a team building, stress-relieving, fun day. As an added bonus for participating in the Amazing Geo-Challenge, the team will receive admission to the evening Mad Science Banquet, continuing the fun celebrating youth S.T.E.M. education. Admission for the Geo-Challenge is $400 for a team of four, full day of activities, lunch, t-shirt, prizes, awards, entry into the banquet, and dinner. The banquet fundraiser is $50 a ticket with a silent auction, dinner, drinks, activities, and more.
Our event may be fun-filled and casual, yet our approach to impacting Alaska’s student education is not. Challenger serves communities and schools statewide with onsite, virtual, and outreach educational opportunities in the science, technology, engineering, and math (S.T.E.M.) disciplines. Our vision is to strengthen workforce development by delivering stimulating, real-world activities to Alaskans and inspire students to pursue higher education and careers within S.T.E.M. fields. As a stand-alone facility, CLCA relies on fundraisers, earned revenue, and generous supporters to continue launching our mission throughout the state. Your participation in this exciting event will make a difference in the Kenai Peninsula community, the expansion, and quality of Challenger’s educational programs, and eight High School student scholarships between Kenai and Nikiski, enriching Alaskan youth.
