Geocaching

There are over 2.5 million people doing geocaching around the world, why not try it now!

What is it?

Geocaching started taking the world by storm in May 2000 after a computer consultant found that GPS could be “really exciting”. He hid some treasure at his home in the woods need Beavercreek, Oregon, near Portland, for people to find, broadcast the GPS coordinates and said, “Come and get it”.

His only rule was “Take some stuff, leave some stuff”. And that’s exactly what Geocaching is…you go in search of treasure by using the GPS system on your mobile device – once you’ve found it, you leave your name in a logbook and replace the treasure you decide to take.

It’s pretty simple and means, as a family, you can be adventurers together. You won’t usually find anything quite as precious as gold, silver and diamonds but it’s quite exciting!

Where to Find the Caches

You’ll find caches in rivers, under rocks waterfalls, and in town centres but there are others that are more difficult to find. Caches are now hidden at the top of mountains, or can only be accessed by rock climbing and by using special equipment.

But don’t worry, you don’t have to start scaling rocks, you can take it as seriously or relaxed as you like. You can take it up as a regular hobby, or just give it a go.
