Geocaching: A Real-World Outdoor Treasure Hunt

 In Blog

A genius way to add more fun to your summer camping trips

 

Have you ever heard of Geocaching? It is a worldwide, real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS enabled devices. It’s a great way to explore new places and turn your regular camping or hiking spot into a complete new adventure, as the hidden treasures will lead you through paths and down trails that are smaller or even hidden from regular use. It is also a great way to bring families together on an outdoor trip by providing kids and teenagers with a unique and interesting adventure.

There are almost 2.6 million active geocaches and over 6 million community members worldwide! Sounds fun? You bet it is! And it is a great activity to plan for your next outdoor adventure with your favorite Denver Tent!

How does Geocaching work?

The participants navigate to the given sets of specific GPS coordinates and attempt to find the geocache –which is the container- hidden at that location. Geocaches can vary greatly in size and appearance: in the field you will see everything from large, clear plastic containers to film canisters to a fake rock with a secret compartment!

There are many game levels but to get started, geocaching requires these 8 steps:

  1. Register for a free Basic Membership.

  2. Visit the “Hide & Seek a Cache” page.

  3. Enter your postal code and click “search.”

  4. Choose any geocache from the list and click on its name.

  5. Enter the coordinates of the geocache into your GPS Device.

  6. Use your GPS device to assist you in finding the hidden geocache.

  7. Sign the logbook and return the geocache to its original location.

  8. Share your geocaching stories and photos online.

All you need to start is a GPS device or a GPS-enabled mobile phone so that you can navigate to the cache, and a Geocaching.com Membership.
