Preparation

IMPORTANT: This activity must be done with an accompanying adult

Using the app Geocaching, you will be able to find several hidden containers around the Greater Toronto Area with random items inside them. The app provides the GPS locations of the caches as well as hints to aid in their discovery. Those participating in this activity are encouraged to bring a small item with them to leave inside the cache and take one of the items within for themselves, while also using the notepads inside to log their discovery of the cache. Be sure to bring some hand sanitizer with you and follow the best social distancing practices along the way!

This activity is brought to you by Camp Northland, an overnight camp based in Haliburton, Ontario with a 100+ year tradition of creating memorable summer experiences for children and teenagers from Southern Ontario.
