Here are five tips on how to make geocaching with kids a success!🕵️‍♂️Make it a family activity. Involve the kids in choosing which geocaches to look for. Have them read the description of the geocache and brainstorm what it could be!🕵️‍♂️Let the kids be your guide. Children are eager to participate, so let them take the lead through navigating or looking under each rock and bush for an elusive geocache.🕵️‍♂️Be enthusiastic. Enthusiasm is contagious. If you are genuinely excited about geocaching, your kids will be, too. So start practicing your happy dance and be ready to break out those moves when you find one!🕵️‍♂️Make memories to last a lifetime. Capture all those memorable moments, from searching to finding to signing and trading. Each step of the way can be an exciting adventure.🕵️‍♂️Bring snacks. They can mean the difference between a fun day at the park and a before-dinner meltdown.🕵️‍♂️Check out our guidelines here: www.bccdil.org/explore/conservation-areas/geocache-policy/ ...
