Have you ever heard of geocaching? It’s like a gigantic outdoor treasure hunt with millions of prize-filled containers hidden around the world! Geocaching is a great way to get outside, discover new sites in your town, and even learn about navigation. This is a great activity to do with your family, so head outdoors today and find some treasure!
To get started, just create a free account at geocaching.com, scan the map for geocaches near you, and use a cell phone’s GPS to search for these hidden treasures using the coordinates provided. Once you discover the cache, sign and date the logbook, and note your score online. Even cooler? Prizes! Typically, geocaches include a small trinket for a ‘prize’ for finding the treasure. Depending on your comfort level, it’s fine to take the prize in the cache as long as you leave behind something of equal or greater value for the next geocachers to find.
