What we're about
This group is for people who love being outdoors and have a sense of adventure. Join us in looking for many of the 1000s of geocaches hidden all over Greater Vancouver in parks and along walking paths. You are guaranteed to have fun, discover lots of cool new places, and get lots of steps on the Fitbit. All ages and fitness levels welcome. Looking forward to meeting you!
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game. It’s easy to get started! You use your smartphone to navigate to different locations and then find the geocaches hidden there. If you don’t have a phone, that’s fine too, as we’re going as a group.
Geocaches are containers hidden by people like you and me. Typically, you’ll find a small lock n lock container with a logbook and trinkets for trading. Of course, that’s just one type of geocache. They are all sizes and sometimes very cleverly camouflaged! When you find it, you sign the logbook, trade items if you like, and rehide it where you found it. We will be finding geocaches listed on http://www.geocaching.com . The official Geocaching app (by Groundspeak) is free and you can get it for your iPhone or Android.
