Geocaching Healthy Kids Community Challenge

 

What is Geocaching?

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game using a GPS enabled device. Caches (containers) are hidden at different locations throughout Collingwood, along the trail system. There are 30 HKCC geocaches hidden. Inside the cache there are trinkets to trade and a logbook to sign. Caches may be hidden behind a tree, under a log or beneath a rock. All of the Healthy Kids Community Challenge geocaches have been registered with Geocaching.com.
