Prizes

Grand Prize

One winner will receive an ultimate National Park adventure with Aramark Parks.

4 days/3 nights at an Aramark Park for two people. Includes round trip economy airfare, one outdoor experience, meal and rental stipend and a pair of Nikon Monarch binoculars.

Second Prize

Five lucky winners will win Monarch M5 10x42 binoculars

MONARCH M5 10x42 binoculars are built for the magical moments that happen from dawn and dusk with an ideal balance between 10x magnification and field of view. An adjustable turn-and-slide eyecups with long eye relief make these the most comfortable MONARCH binoculars yet. Nikon’s renowned ED glass reduces chromatic aberration while the dielectric high-reflective multilayer prism coatings ensure superior light transmittance; resulting in brighter images and more natural colors. Phase-corrected coatings are also applied to prism surfaces to increase image resolution. The result? Better, more clear and brighter optics to take your adventure to new heights.

Third Prize

Five lucky winners will win Nikon PROSTAFF P3 8x42 binoculars

You’ll brighten your view with Nikon PROSTAFF P3 8x42 binoculars. Full-size 42mm front objectives gather maximum light for a brighter, clearer view, even as daylight is fading. Eight times (8X) magnification provides a wide field of view that shows more of the scene and is also easier to hold steady—great for locating wildlife or using the binoculars on the go. A waterproof, fogproof and drop-resistant design means you can take them everywhere, and renowned Nikon optics make every view spectacular. Whether you're backpacking, birding or watching your favorite team, PROSTAFF P3 binoculars deliver more performance for less.

FAQs

What is the purpose of the Outdoors Challenge?
Chimani is encouraging Americans to get outside and explore parks and public lands all year round. To make it a little more enticing, we are offering participants an opportunity to win an unforgettable national park experience and great binoculars simply by having people visit and check into parks and points of interest (POI) across the country as a means of entering for a chance to win.
