Ask your children if they want to go outdoors for a hike, and you'll likely hear moans of protest as they turn back to their screens. Invite them on a high-tech treasure hunt for a "geocache," (pronounced geo-cash) and they'll start peppering you with questions as they put on their shoes and head for the door!
This web site is designed to help children and parents learn more about the exciting sport of geocaching. After spending a few minutes here, you will be ready to hunt for your first geocache. You'll also learn a bit about the Global Positioning System, which is the technology behind the activity.
The popular children's site, KidzWorld, offers helpful tips and information for kids about Geocaching.
