This activity was created to illustrate how to set up and run a geocaching course for educational purposes. The course is largely comprised of virtual geocaches, which are objects already on the ground, such as statues, benches, and monuments, but also includes two real geocaches—planted by geocachers and listed on This course was established for the 90th annual conference of the National Council for Geographic Education in Birmingham, Alabama. However, the course could be adapted for other themes and geographic areas. If many participants are involved, create a course that includes these same clues and points, but one that runs in the opposite direction. This will ensure that not every participant is trying to find the same geocache at the same time. An answer key is included, so you may wish to withhold the answer key until the participants have completed the course. See safety notes in the “Things To Remember” section.
