Becoming an Outdoor Family
Body: 

Since 1997, Groton State Forest has hosted Vermont’s Becoming an Outdoor Family workshop. For three days each spring, this annual event gives families the opportunity to camp, enjoy the park, and learn outdoor skills. More than 40 different hands-on classes are offered during the weekend. They showcase the wide variety of outdoor activities available to Vermonters, and help instill a basic understanding of environmental conservation. The only thing better than spending time outdoors, is spending time outdoors with your family.

Rock Climbing

Rock Climbing can be an intimidating sport for many people. But with the proper training it can be an exhilarating experience. There is a sense of accomplishment when scaling what you thought was impossible. It can be a real confidence booster, and its lessons can be applied to everyday life. Host Marianne Eaton attends the Petra Cliffs Rock Climbing Center in Burlington and then tackles a sixty-foot cliff high above Lake Dunmore in Salisbury with her teachers.

Orienteering
Body: 

Orienteering is the sport of using nothing but a compass and map to locate points on a course that has been laid out in the woods. Competitors race the clock to locate the checkpoints, and then return to the starting point. It can be competitive or just a nice walk in the woods. It's a sport that is popular throughout the world. Host Marianne Eaton joins members of the Green Mountain Orienteering Club on one of their outings and navigates her way through the wilderness.

Skydiving
Body: 

There are over 300,000 active skydivers in the United States. Stepping into the doorway of a plane at 13,500 feet and leaping for an adrenaline-filled free fall is a feeling like no other. For those interested in trying this sport, a tandem ride where you are strapped together with a certified instructor is an easy way to see what skydiving is all about. And just about anyone can drive in off the street and try it. We visited Vermont Skydiving Adventures in Addison and went up in the plane to watch first-timers take exhilarating tandem rides.

Caving
Body: 

Caving is a tricky business and takes a lot of preparation. In addition to arming yourself with coveralls, helmets, lights, ropes and supply of the good batteries, you have to be ready to do a fair amount of scrambling, stooping, crawling and squeezing through tight places. But in addition to its challenges, caving has its rewards when you uncover thousands of years of geologic history. Unfortunately, many of these subterranean museums have been vandalized. That's why veterans of the underground are tight-lipped about their location. Host Marianne Eaton joins members of the Vermont Cavers Association in Rutland County for a trip underground to explore one of Vermont's deep treasures.
