Come experience the fun new sport of Geocaching, the Internet-based hide-and-seek game that is growing by leaps and bounds across the country! REI Outdoor School Geocaching instructors will share how to use your GPS unit and astute powers of observation to find hidden caches around the local area. Learn strategies for locating cleverly hidden caches, how to use online “geo-tools”, and Geocaching etiquette. Along the way, we will also teach basic GPS skills, including creating waypoints, plotting a course and transferring route information from a map to a GPS. We will provide GPS units and maps for your use as we discover locally hidden caches, or you are welcome to bring your own.
