I am so excited for this SCVNGR summer program! I downloaded the app on my phone today, and can't wait to get started! For a few of my Summer Adventure Series, we will be participating in many of these Treks and Challenges, so make sure to download the app, and get familiar with the program, just in time for our next adventure!Visit Salt Lake has chosen its Salt Lake City Summer Crew, and they have already begun their challenges. You can meet and find out more about the ambassadors on the Visit Salt Lake facebook page.If you're not a part of the SLC Summer Crew- no worries! You can play along with them, and even compete against them! All you have to do is download the SCVNGR app on your smartphone, and start browsing through the Treks and Challenges. Each Trek has Challenges attached to it, and it's very simple to follow the instructions for the simple tasks you have to do at each location. For each Challenge you complete, you earn points. You can invite your friends to participate and compete against them for points, as well as compete against the SLC Summer Crew!Visit Salt Lake currently has five Treks to participate in:You can also win prizes for completing Treks and Challenges:
