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).

CITO Weekend in Manitoba!

It's that time of year again!

Geocachers are a helpful bunch. We regularly give back to the community by helping clean up public spaces. Every year, Groundspeak designates one weekend in the spring as "CITO Weekend", when geocachers can receive a special digital souvenir for taking part in a CITO event. This year, CITO weekend takes place April 25-26. Manitoba cachers will be out in Winnipeg, Dauphin, and Brandon on Saturday, April 25 to clean up local public spaces. The party continues in Winnipeg on Sunday, April 26.

Consider coming out to a CITO event this April.
