Veterans Day is November 11, and this year, Outdoorsy has decided to honor active-duty and veteran service members. How? With the opportunity to win big and recharge outdoors, of course! 

From mental health to physical health, we believe that everyone, especially our veteran and active-duty community members, deserves to connect with a space that inspires, invigorates, and recharges the body and mind

All that being said, if you’re a veteran or active-duty member OR if you know any you would like to nominate, here’s what you should know!

Skip to the fun part and enter HERE.

How it works 

Over the next two weeks, Outdoorsy is teaming up with our campground friends at Thousand Trails and We Are The Mighty to highlight your stories. That’s right, we want to hear from our veteran and active-duty community members about YOUR service experience and how the outdoors has helped (or could help) you reconnect with yourself.

Who can enter?

To win, you must be a currently or formerly enrolled active-duty service member. If you are a veteran, you can enter yourself. And if you know a veteran, you can nominate them! 

How to enter 

If you are a veteran…

First of all, thank you for your service! Second of all, entering is easy! Record a minimum 20-second video that includes your name, your service dates, which military branch you served under, and what connecting with the outdoors means to you! 

Alternatively, you can write 2-3 sentences describing what the outdoors mean to you and upload a photo of yourself.

If you know a veteran…

Enter on their behalf! You can nominate them by sharing their story with us via video. And we’ll help highlight all the incredible people across the Outdoorsy network who have served our country.

Alternatively, you can write 2-3 sentences describing what the outdoors mean to you and upload a photo of the Veteran or Active-Duty service member you’re nominating.

Submissions open 11/8 and close at 11:59pm on 11/15.

What can you win? 

There will be one grand prize winner and TWO runner-ups! 

The grand prize winner will receive: 

  • $1500 in Outdoorsy credit
