Each week, Patch brings you an idea of something to do to enjoy some free time for yourself, or with friends and family. Here is this week's choice:Looking for free fun? Love to win prizes? Want to take an interactive tour that will expose you to some of the treasures and pleasures that are in the Somerset County Park system?
Sign up to participate in “The County Caper" Although this annual event is scheduled for two one-day events on Saturday, Aug. 24, and on Sunday, Aug. 25, participants are asked to sign up ahead of time for the two County Caper events.
Returning for 2013 is an adult only (15 years old and up) adventure called The County Caper Accelerated! This one day adult event will occur on Saturday, Aug. 24.
The original one-day family event will be on Sunday, Aug. 25. Either way, The County Caper is a one-day game that takes families and friends on an interactive tour of Somerset County Parks and facilities. This local version of “The Amazing Race” will take teams to various destinations within Somerset County.
Once the teams arrive, they need to perform tasks, find clues or gather information. Each team will be given a journal to collect stamps and/or record their findings. Bring your camera!
The County Caper Accelerated! is a one day game that takes adults on an interactive tour of Somerset County Parks and facilities as well. Participants will be physically and mentally challenged while completing fun tasks and finding hidden clues throughout the day as their team races against the clock.
Both events are rain or shine.
Registration is required for this free event. Please visit www.somersetcountyparks.org or call 908-766-2489.
Start your engines! Remember, it’s not just a game . . . it’s an adventure. The County Caper is designed to encourage everyone in Somerset to explore, learn and protect the county parks and other natural areas.
