What is geocaching? It is a worldwide, outdoor treasure hunting game using a hand held GPS enabled unit, a good set of eyes and a bit of hiking around.
Juniors will earn the Geocaching badge. While learning how to gear-up for their adventure the girls will be taught how to use the GPS and to read the coordinated. Working as a team, using the GPS, they will follow the coordinated to locate camouflaged containers (caches) and solve the puzzles inside.
The afternoon session is for the Older Girls and is designed to meet the requirements of the Field Day Badge. Patterned after the popular television show The Amazing Race, teams will use handheld GPS units and a set of clues to race to the finish line. Along the way scouts will encounter and develop puzzles and group initiatives including: historic mysteries, science puzzles, and the great storytelling challenge, among others.
