On Tuesday, February 20, exercise both mind and body in a modern day treasure hunt at Bays Mountain Park! Caching in a Winter Wonderland is a new, outdoor program designed to help individuals learn how to use a basic GPS unit in order to play the geocaching game.
Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world. Geocaching is a game anyone can play, and you can do it as a team, by yourself or with your family.
The game is designed to be played all year long, but a small course will be set up at the park in order for guests to learn what they are looking for and how the game is played.
To participate, you must provide your own GPS device. This is an outdoor program, and participants should dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather.
This will be a meet and greet to talk about the geocaching game. Bring your stories and your smiles! It will begin at 4 pm and end at 4:30 pm. There will be a program happening from 3-4 pm. prior to this geoevent. It is not a requirement to log this event but you are more than welcome to join us for the fun. We will be set up in the Discovery Theater, downstairs near the fish tanks. We hope to see you!!
There is a parking fee of $5 and you can learn more at their website www.baysmountain.com.
