Geocaching for kids

Ask your kids if they would like to go for a hike. The probable answer you would get is a protest as they go back to their TV/phone screens. Alternatively, suggest that you all go for a high-tech treasure hunt such as Geocache. Soon you’ll get questions from everyone – as they show interest in what you might say next. This GPS game is a family-friendly game to introduce your kids to the wonders of nature. It can engage your kids and family to the natural world.

So, what is Geocaching?

Geocaching is a combination of cool technology with the drive to find a hidden box of unknown prizes. Since these prizes are a mystery, kids and adults find this fun activity irresistible.

To locate these hidden containers (caches), you’ll use a handheld GPS device or a GPS enabled smartphone. Currently, there are more than three million registered caches in over 190 countries. You’ll be surprised by the number of caches in your local area.

The game has an advanced version that consists of trackable traveling items and multistep puzzles. For instance, the game involves objects such as travel bugs and geocoins. Since this advanced stage has lots of challenges, kids and family stay interested in the upcoming outings.
