If your kids like treasure hunts, they’ll love geocaching.
Geocaching is an outdoor, world-wide treasure hunt which requires the use of a GPS to find the treasure.
The treasures aren’t really anything big – nothing of value but a little memento or trinket – stored in a weather-proof metal box.
The treasure is in the hunt – that’s the fun!
Get Started Geocaching
The kit includes a GPS unit, a geocache container, a guidebook, and treasures. The GPS is already loaded with 250,000 geocache sites in the United States and you’ll get plenty of hints if you need.
Find a Hunt
Now that you have your GPS, you’re ready to go on a geocache adventure. Find a hunt online at Geocaching.com at the “Hide and Seek” page (or on your GPS or mobile app). You’ll be given the coordinates of the cache.
Next find the starting point and get started looking.
Find the Cache
When you find the treasure, sign your name in the logbook. If you take the treasure, you must leave one to replace it.
Geocaching gives you a fun family activity that keeps you outside, active, and learning. Let us know how it goes. Happy geocaching!!
