Geocaching: Sustainable Treasure Hunting
Bring your family geocaching at Stoney Creek Farm! Geocaching is a type of global treasure hunt where people look for caches, or hidden stashes of treasures, using a GPS or smartphone. We will have several sites hidden around the farm ready for you to find. This is a fantastic way for new geocachers to get acquainted with the game.
Bring your own GPS device or use your smartphone to find the caches. Coordinates and instructions will be provided prior to the event, and we will be on hand to answer any questions and help get you started. This is a self-led event. You will need to bring small “treasures” to trade as the general etiquette of geocaching is ‘take a treasure, leave a treasure‘. Examples include small plastic bugs, toy soldiers, coins, colorful stones, keychains, kid’s meal toys, or other small trinkets.
*Attention scouts – – this event could help you earn your geocaching merit badge!
The Geocaching Event will start on the back porch of the Stoney Creek Barn and go across the creek and several acres of the farm. Geocachers should wear sturdy shoes and layered clothing depending on the weather.
After the hike, kids can also go feed the goats and walk around the farm/play on the swing set. Parents/Grandparents are welcome to bring a lunch and enjoy time outdoors on the farm.
Note: Any parents who want to drop off older children, must sign a farm liability waiver.
