“There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy’s life that he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.” – Mark Twain
Who hasn’t dreamed of finding hidden treasure buried in the backyard? The words, “X marks the spot” is enough to get every child’s heart pumping. Now that summer has started, the quest for adventure can begin! Treasure hunting and geocaching are the ultimate in fun activities for kids and are the perfect family activities.
Geocaching is one of the fastest growing activities, and its popularity is sweeping the planet. If you haven’t tried it yet, then you’re in for a treat. This real world, outdoor treasure hunt game requires a GPS-enabled device. All you have to do is navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache container hidden at that location. It’s that simple!
Because JM Cremps is devoted to bringing families closer together, we are happy to provide you with two-way radios for communicating with your fellow treasure hunters, a compass to point you in the right direction, and all other supplies to make your geocaching experience the perfect family outing.
Once you have the necessary equipment, the rest is easy. Just visit the international geocaching database at http://www.geocaching.com. Enter the zip code where you’d like to search for treasure. You will then see a list of hidden geocaches and their coordinates. Pick whichever one you’d like, enter the coordinates into your device, and get started!
If you haven’t got the equipment necessary for a full on geocache hunt, then why not try a good, old-fashioned scavenger hunt for kids. We’ve got several good ones ready for you to print out and get started. Best of all they are FREE! Regardless of which activity you choose, we are happy to be a part of your next fun family activity!
