Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches.

If you're looking to seize a day, unlike any other than make your way to Dauphin this September. You are the hero that Dauphin deserves and the one it needs right now! Answer the call because your presence is requested at the biggest Superhero/Geocacher gathering this far north of Gotham City.
This edition of Cachefest will feature a Superhero Carnival. Each carnival station has geocache coordinates that will be unlocked after you take part in the activity. Explore Vermillion Park and unlock all the secrets that are hidden within.
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!

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.
