FAMILY FRIENDLY CLASS – Recommended for ages 8 yrs and up.

Have you heard the word but do not know what it means? Seen a newspaper article or scene in a TV show about it? Has a friend mentioned their favorite game/sport/ hobby and you want to learn more? Did you come across something hidden in the woods or under a park bench and want to find out what’s going on?

Come to a FREE presentation and learn the basics of GEOCACHING, which is a family-friendly, internet-based, outdoor adventure game that uses a GPS-enabled device to find containers hidden just around the corner and all over the world! Topics to be covered include:

  • Brief history of the Global Positioning System
  • Description of geocaching
  • Types of caches
  • How to hide and find a cache
  • Basics of geocaching.com
  • Supplies to take on a cache run
  • Swag and trackables
  • Basic usage of a GPSr
  • Logging your adventures

Come learn about a fairly inexpensive hobby that you can enjoy and experience on your own, with your entire family, or a few geocaching friends… and enjoy exploring places you didn’t know existed or were too busy to stop and visit.
