Welcome

Welcome Introduction

Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches. (Learn more about geocaching) To get started geocaching, all you need is a GPS receiver and a geocache location. (Learn more about getting started) You can find a nearby geocache location at geocaching.com by entering an address or town into the search box.

The Manitoba Geocaching Association (MBGA) strives to advance the sport of geocaching through social activities, public education and promotion of geocaching. (Learn more about the MBGA).

GeoVenture 2016: Summer Camp

What a weekend! We had almost perfect weather... the breeze from the lake was a bit much for the Turdle Tarp. We had very few mosquitoes and we had lots of fun! Photos to be added shortly.

Here is a list of the Geocaches published from this weekend.

Photos have been uploaded to our new Flickr page!

Cell Phone Apps for Manual Coordinate Entry

Sometimes we host events that allow Geocachers to solve puzzles and find Geocaches before they are published online. While we recommend having a dedicated handheld GPS unit to manually enter coordinates, we recognize that not everyone has purchased a GPS unit yet and need options for their cellular device.
