Have you heard of geocaching? This wildly popular outdoor activity uses a GPS (global positioning system) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to play “hide and seek” with small containers, called “geocaches,” which are hidden in specific locations marked by coordinates. You and your team will search for those coordinates, find the geocache, and log in in the small notebook inside the container. Sometimes the boxes also contain small prizes or toys. Geocaching is fun, educational, and great outdoor exercise!
Our groups will be led by Phil Klinger, who has been doing geocaching for us for many years. Phil, a former Department of Transportation engineer, has worked for many years with children and teens who want to learn geocaching, which requires strong orienteering skills and a passion for finding hidden treasure.
Parents are welcome to accompany their children on this activity if they wish. Please let us know if your child will be attending by calling the library at 315-986-5932 or stopping by at your convenience.
