This hands-on workshop introduces youngsters and adults of all ages to this fascinating new game.Select Saturdays (dates below), 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM Memorial Park Rec Center 1950 S Valley Pkwy., Lewisville, TX 75067 http://cityoflewisville.com Cost: $15 Individual, $45 Family, $7.50 Senior (50+)
Included in this workshop will be a very brief history of the game, things to consider when “geocaching,” and an interactive lesson on how GPS works. All students will learn the basic skills of operating a handheld GPS receiver and will get to locate hidden treasure containers, known as “caches,” on the park property.
Please wear comfortable clothing, walking shoes, and bring a water bottle. The workshop is held on site.
Geocaching is going on in your parks and community, and this is the perfect opportunity to get the family outside and check it out! We will have handheld GPS receivers for the workshop, or if you have one, you may bring it to the workshop. Register one week before class session for instructor to plan accordingly.
