A great way to add more fun to your next camping trip!

Do you know what Geocaching is? Simply put, it is a worldwide, real-world outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS enabled devices, and a great way to explore new places and turn your regular camping spot into a complete new experience.

It is a great outdoor activity for older kids and teenagers, and a great way to bring families together with a unique and interesting adventure. There are almost 2.6 million active geocaches and over 6 million community members worldwide, so you can be sure there are enough treasures around the world waiting to be discovered.

How to find a Geocache?

The participants navigate to the given sets of specific GPS coordinates and attempt to find the geocache –the container where the treasure is stored- hidden at that location. Geocaches can vary greatly in size and appearance: in the field you will see everything from large, clear plastic containers to film canisters to a fake rock with a secret compartment!
