The intentions of this program are to help you provide teens with a background on the popular sport of Geocaching, which is a modern hide-and-seek game savvy teens are sure to love.
Geocaching is a sporting activity that takes place outdoors and uses a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver to hide and seek containers (called "geocaches") anywhere in the world.
In civilian terms, a GPS device obtains signals from a Global
Positioning System for many purposes, such as for:
Hand Held Receivers
Cell Phone GPS
Geocaching Toolkit iCGT
Geocaches are usually waterproof containers containing a log book and a “treasure”. The “treasure” is not actually something the finder will keep. It is sometimes of sentimental value to the owner and has a story behind it.
BYOP: Bring Your Own Pencil to fill out the logbook.
Cache: Short for geocache.
CITO: Cache In Trash Out...an environmental approach to geocaching, cleaning up the
are you have visited.
Ground Zero (GZ): When you have reached the location of a cache.
Muggle: Taken from the Harry Potter series, refers to someone who’s not a geocacher.
TFTC: Thanks For The Cache. Usually written into the logbook when a geocacher
enjoyed the cache.
Provide teens with old containers (Pringles pop cans, peanut butter jars, etc) and have them decorate with glitter, permanent markers, and tempera paint.
Decorate notebooks using old magazines, construction paper, glue, glitter, paint, etc. These books will serve as their personal log book / journal for keeping track of their geocaching experiences.
Catch and release books from all over the world at this online community.
Because most of us can’t afford to travel all over the world, this site provides us with visual images recommended by other Google earth users.
This is a fun website where anyone can log on to track where their money has come and gone.
