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).

As you may have heard (perhaps several times recently), this month marks 15 years since the first ever geocache (or “GPS Stash” as it was called then) was hidden. In the 15 intervening years, over four million geocaches have been hidden around the world, of which some 2.6 million can be found today. To mark the anniversary, a special geocoin was designed.
