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 families, geocaching is just plain FUN!

Getting outdoors and active as a family is not only good for your health but also great for family bonding, encouraging a love of adventure in our kids, and developing movement skills.
