We Celebrated National Get Outdoors Day with OFF!
This past weekend we had the most wonderful opportunity as part of my partnership with OFF!®. We were part of a group of first time campers here in Georgia at Sweetwater Creek State Park. We camped for one night and then took part in the National Get Outdoors Day (#GODay) the following morning.

OUR NIGHT CAMPING AND DAY OUTDOORS
We had a wonderful time camping out overnight and taking part in all of the fun activities. Right after dinner, Governor Nathan Deal arrived to declare National Get Outdoors Day an official day in Georgia and presented a proclamation to the Georgia State Parks representatives.
We even had other special guests who showed up and delighted the kids as well:
After a good nights sleep, we headed over for National Get Outdoors Day where there were lots of fun activities. Of course we stopped by the OFF!® booth first to take pictures and get some OFF!® wipes for everyone:
Then we were off to play and check out the activities. They had tree climbing and foam brick building.
Then we were off to to docks for paddle boating, water bike riding and canoeing. Look how much fun my family was having!
We got to hang out with the Radio Disney people for a little while when they had a dance party.
After boating and dancing, we headed off for some archery and fishing. We got to cast lines, make our own lures and finally fish where everyone caught something even if it was only a few lily pads.
My family had a wonderful time. I had truly forgotten how much fun we had outdoors when we were all together. We did so many activities that we didn't even have time to do everything. I would have loved to go paddle boarding but there wasn't time.
The OFF!® brand partnership with National Get Outdoors Day (GO Day) was the perfect partnership. This made it much easier for Americans to enjoy the great outdoors. I am thrilled to have been a part of such a fun program.
This is part of a partnership with OFF!®.
