Geocache event


Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever organized a Geocache event for a school? We are thinking of doing a scavenger hunt and I thought geocache might be the way to go. My family loves to Geocache but I have never hid one myself or organized an event. 

I suspect we would have between 150-200 kids and adults at the event. How would I best organize the event so it is easy for a kindergartner and still fun for a 5th grader??

i would contact the cache reviewer for your area. each reviewer has quirks they allow and dont. they should be able to help you with the rules. the one major rule i see is no caches on school property. the other would be the amount of gps's needed to accomodate that many people and to have to explain to that many people how to program coords into an infinite variety of gps's that would be there. we helped with one a few years ago and these are just a few ideas. sounds like it would be fun though. have you been to any geocache events/meetings? maybe talk to a few local cachers and get there 2 cents. they might want to help thats how we got into ours. cache on
