School Holiday Geocaching Adventure Albany

Looking for a fun, engaging, outdoors activity for the kids this July school holidays?
Great Southern Centre for Outdoor Recreation Excellence (GSCORE) offers children aged 7-10 years the opportunity to learn about geocaching in a fun, safe environment this school holidays.
If you haven’t heard of geocaching, check out our blog post on the topic, which describes what this unique trend is all about and what’s required to participate.
In a nutshell, think of it as a worldwide treasure hunt where anyone in the world with a smartphone can access the treasure map. It’s a great way to get children discovering their environment, learning about gps technology and participating in group activities.
Participants will be provided with all equipment necessary to start geocaching at the session.
If time allows, children will also be guided in building makeshift shelters. Numbers are strictly limited to ensure children have the best learning opportunity and are well supervised.

- A hat
