Join the world’s largest treasure hunt!
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
For the ultimate outdoor treasure hut with a tech twist, geocaching is hard to beat! Here’s how to get started –
1. Create an account
Create an account online or through a Geocaching app to view a map of geocaches near you. Just remember to get permission before downloading a geocache app on a phone.
2. Find a geocache
Use the app to navigate to a geocache nearby. Don’t forget to bring a pen!
3. Share your experience
Once you find the geocache, sign and date the logbook. Place the geocache back where you found it and log your experience online.
