Geocaching

Intro to geocaching

Geocaching is a real-world treasure hunt happening right now, all around you.

There are millions of geocaches worldwide. Geocaches are found in parks, urban areas, forests, deserts, on top of mountains, underwater — pretty much anywhere you can imagine. There are probably a few near you right now…

Navigate to geocaches using:

Geocaching with an app

  1. On your app, select a cache and navigate to it.
  2. Once you’ve found the cache — sign the logbook.
  3. Return the logbook and cache to their original location.
  4. Share your experience and log your “find”.

Geocaching with a GPS

  1. Search for nearby geocaches on Geocaching.com.
  2. Download coordinates to your GPS device and navigate to a cache.
  3. Once you’ve found the cache — sign the logbook.
  4. Return the logbook and cache to their original location.
  5. Share your experience and log your “find”.

142 Squadron and Geocaching

142 Squadron has done a bit of Geocaching, both here at home and while in Europe during Exercise Canadian Invasion.

We have a Travel Bug Geocoin that travelled around Belgium and Germany a couple of years ago: Determination 2

We also placed our first regular cache at Humber Bay Park East in May 2019. View the White Arch
