Why Hide a Geocache?

Have you introduced your family to the adventure of geocaching?

Geocaching is a hunt for hidden treasure using a GPS (or GPS-enabled phone). There are over 2.2 million geocaches hidden all over the world, ready for you to find. You simply log onto Geocaching.com to find the coordinates of a cache in your area, head outside and follow your phone to find the hidden treasure. Once found, you sign the logbook, trade one of the treasures found inside with something you brought to share and hide the cache container back in its place for the next treasure hunter.

It’s a lot of fun to find a geocache, but it can be even more fun to hide one.

Hiding a cache is a way to share your outdoor adventures with other families. And a cache hidden by kids for kids is extra-special—it creates more fun and adventures for everyone.

Hiding a cache will introduce other families to your favorite places, show your kids the value of giving back and create an outdoor adventure for other families with young kids.
