If you, like me, are a fan of the “Hunger Games” — or maybe if just your kids are — this could be the spring break trip for you. The Resort at Paws Up near Missoula, Mont., is inviting families to participate in its first annual Wilderness Games. That’s right, harness your inner Katniss and head into the Montana wild to find out if you can survive Hunger Games-style.
The Wilderness Games will team up family members during series of adventures. Over a four-day weekend of friendly competition, families are invited to partake in a variety of wilderness challenges. Ultimately, the family with the highest cumulative score will receive a return vacation to Paws Up with airfare included – a $25,000 value. If that incentive isn’t enought rile competitive spirits, hitting archery targets with the same bow model used in “The Hunger Games” might. Guests will have the opportunity to compete in the archery challenge with a Hoyt Buffalo Bow. From horseback riding to sporting clays, cattle drives and more, kids and adults alike can enjoy 37,000 acres of prime Lewis and Clark territory as a playground during an unforgettable spring break vacation.
The Wilderness Games are available over a choice of three weekends: March 26 to 29, April 2 to 5 and April 9 to 12. In addition to the Grand Prize of a return family vacation (awarded to the family with the highest cumulative score from all of the weekends combined), each weekend, prizes will be given to the families with the highest scores.
Inclusive spring break package rates range from $405 to $560 per person per night based on occupancy of the 28 available luxury cabins and lodges. Note: The Wilderness Games are suitable for children ages eight and older.
