Vail, CO, April 28, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Building on the success of five past events in Vail, Colorado, The Kids Adventure Games announced plans for eight national events in the summer of 2014.
Running from June through August, the Kids Adventure Games will schedule stops at some of the most spectacular, scenic outdoor havens in the U.S., each providing for a unique backdrop and world-class recreational facilities.
The Kids Adventure Games will offer kids, ages 6 through 14, the opportunity to experience the thrill of adventure racing. During the races, teams of two will work together to navigate a variety of sports and problem-solving challenges, including mountain biking, hiking, tubing, archery, a low ropes course, a zip line, a climbing wall, a Tarzan swing, a giant slip-n-slide and more.
Kids Adventure Games organizer and international adventure racer, Billy Mattison, says the races
emphasize teamwork, problem solving and fun. "The idea behind the race is to create an event that has all the fun things we dreamed about as kids," said Mattison. "By putting zip-lines, slip-n-slides, rope bridges, tubing, mud crawls and anything
else we can dream up, the kids have a true adventure and an incredible time. We want the kids to cross the finish line pumped up with smiles on their faces and a feeling of accomplishment."
The Kids Adventure Games was founded in 2009 by Hélène and Billy Mattison. Billy Mattison says he's thrilled to take the event nation-wide and allow even more kids the opportunity to challenge themselves and their friends while having a true adventure and an incredible time. "We're excited to continue our adventure and allow thousands of kids each year to learn, grow, thrive, be adventurous and most importantly, have fun."
