WHAT IS GEOCACHING? Geocaching is a fun and challenging activity that is played outdoors with a free app on your mobile phone or GPS reciever. Geocaching is often described as a real world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices to find a hidden (Cache) container. But this is only one part of the game. There are many other aspects which make the game enjoyable and challenging.
Are you looking for a fun activity to get you and your kids out of the house? Geocaching is a game that can do by yourself and is even more fun to do with your family and friends.
For me it all started with a Boy Scout Merit Badge. The Troop needed someone to support the Geocaching Merit Badge and I raised my hand. I had no idea that a few years later I would be creating an online community to support beginner and advanced geocachers.
What are the benefits of Geocaching? There are many aspects to the game so your results may vary:
Excercise – Get out of the house and get some steps in!
Problem Solving – Geocaches come in all shapes, sizes and difficulty levels. The app will get you close but you will generally need to use your brain to make the find
Team work – It is more fun when played with family and friends.
Community -Geocachers are generally helpful and social. You are likely to encounter other cachers on the trail or at geocaching events.
TOOLS OF THE TRADE One of the first things to know is that Geocachers have their own unique Vocabulary and acronyms. For example TOTT is short for Tools of the Trade. Our TOTT Resources area provides information for beginners and advanced Geocachers alike.
Geocache Method provides Geocaching resources for beginners and advanced cachers alike.
