We know that prizes and rewards provide an incentive for families and kids to work towards and we will give out as many prizes as funding allows.
There are several different types of prizes:
❏ Family Reward Events and Point Levels
In communities where we have grant funding or Adventure Partners we will provide FREE Family Reward Events for families that reach certain point levels by completing the Adventures.
→ 5,000 - PARENT INTRO Missions (must be completed in order to qualify for the Family Reward Events)
→ 10,000 - 1st Family Reward Event (can be earned after January 31, 2022)
→ 15,000 - 2nd Family Reward Event (can be earned after February 28, 2022)
→ 20,000 - 3rd Family Reward Event (can be earned after March 31, 2022)
→ 25,000 - 4th Family Reward Event (can be earned after April 30, 2022)

Families that achieve the point levels listed above will need to register and select the Family Reward Event they wish to attend.
→ Each family can earn up to 1 family experience/reward per month.
→ Families will have 30 days to redeem their family reward.
→ Anyone is welcome to qualify and enjoy the Family Reward Events regardless of where they live, but for the most part, the Family Reward Event options will be located in the grant areas where we have funding.
→ We reserve the right to alter program processes at any time if needed to accommodate all of our Discovery Families and available funding.
We will provide a variety of program-wide rewards and giveaways throughout the year! These will be announced via the Discovery App, so be sure to text 'family' to 888-403-4140.
❏ Local Discovery Hunts
The program may choose to provide rewards for families that get the most points on seasonal or themed mini-Hunts, or even for favorite submissions on certain 'missions' in the Discovery Family Adventures Hunt. Prizes are based on availability for the area and at the discretion of the My Discovery Destination! Team. Some Discovery Hunts are program-wide while others are community-based. These rewards will be announced via the Discovery App (text 'family' to 888-403-4140) and in the Discover Family Fun Facebook communities (DiscoverFamily.Fun) communities, so we highly recommend you get connected to both.
❏ Point level rewards in non-grant areas
In areas where we do not have funding we may work with local businesses to provide prizes based on point levels. These prizes will kick in only if and when funding or Family Reward Event Partners are available in the specific area. If you would like to help us get prizes going in your area email Wattson@MyDiscoveryDestination.com.
❏ Family-based Rewards
We encourage parents to not rely solely on the program rewards, but set-up family-based reward systems to encourage kids to participate.
→ Parents (or families as a whole) can decide on a fun family experience they will do when they reach a certain number of points as a family
→ Parents (or families as a whole) can select a few Adventures to tie a 'reward’ to. Parents, if you want to make this decision without the input of your children, you can make it a ‘surprise reward’ tied to a specific mission. Take it one step further and give the reward to the child who selected that particular adventure–after it’s completed, of course.
❏ Why does it seem like we are sometimes ‘vague’ about what the prize you can win actually is?
Because we ARE, but for a very good reason!
We want the prizes we give out to:
→ Bring families together
→ Be located close to where the winning family lives, and
→ Fit the ages and interest of the family members
For example, if a family from St George wins, having a reward located in Cache Valley won’t be of much value to them. In addition, axe throwing is a popular choice for families with teens, but if a family with preschoolers were to win that prize it wouldn’t do much good. We prefer to give out the VALUE of the prize and then involve the family that wins in helping to determine the specific prize. We believe this increases the value of the prize because it fits the winner- we hope you see the value of our ‘vagueness’ as well!
