This activity was established to illustrate the types of questions that could be posed in setting up and running a geocaching course. This course was set up and run at the Calwood Environmental Education Center ( in Boulder County, Colorado USA, but the ideas presented could be adapted for any local area. The course includes 21 questions. A clockwise and a counterclockwise version are both included if you have a large number of participants, so that the teams are not all searching for the same geocache at the same time. Mission (Fictitious): Find the missing map from Arab cartographer Al-Idrisi (1099-1166) entitled "The Gardens of Humanity and the Amusement of the Soul."
