WHAT IS GEOCACHING?
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Nothing! It is free! All you need is a smart phone to install the app on. There is a paid membership, but you don’t need that to start so don’t worry, you can try it for free and if you don’t like it, don’t worry.
HOW DO I START?
You start by registering an account with the Geocaching website (https://www.geocaching.com/account/register) which is free and easy to do. Once you have setup your account you simply need to download the app for your phone (https://www.geocaching.com/play/mobile)
DO I HAVE TO REGISTER BEFORE THE EVENT?
No you don’t however, it would be better if you do; if you aren’t registered then you won’t be able to enjoy the full experience of the game. You only need to have one account per family, so not everyone needs to register if you don’t want to. You can log into multiple devices with the same account and all work together.
