Welcome to First United Bank’s Spirit of Adventure!
We created the Spirit of Adventure program just for kids like you! West Texas is a great place to live and it’s important to experience the unique parts of our communities that help make them so special. By visiting the different Adventures that we’ve included in this program, you will expand your knowledge, become an active member of your community, AND have lots of fun! What a great way to spend your summer!
How It Works:
We’ve gathered up a bunch of cool places for you to visit like local museums, art exhibits, amusement parks and educational facilities within your community. Each of these locations is a great place for you and your family to have fun without spending all of your allowance.
Below you will find Adventure Maps with some of our favorite locations. Ask a parent, or another trusted adult to help you download your Map by clicking the 'Start My Adventure' button. You can get a digital version of the map to save, or just come back to this page as you make your way through your adventure list.
Use your Spirit of Adventure Map to begin exploring. Ask your parent, or another trusted adult to take your picture during your Adventures and share them with us by:
- Posting them on social media using #TheSpiritofAdventure
- eMailing them to marketing@FirstUnited.net
To get the full Spirit of Adventure experience we encourage you to visit every location on the Map, but you can choose which Adventures are right for you.
