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).
*NOTE* The blog posts below sometimes disappear from the first page. Scroll down to the bottom to see previous posts.
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.

Showcase your Geocaching adventures! Start snapping your camera (or phone) to capture your caching moments and Geocaches that inspire you!
All photos submitted will be featured on our website and could be chosen to appear a 2017 Reflections of Caching in Manitoba Calendar! We are looking for photos taken while Geocaching around our province. Let's showcase those unique places that Geocaching takes us!
GeoVenture 2016: Summer Camp will be happening in historic and picturesque Camp Morton Provincial park, just 8km North of Gimli. Camp Morton is a beautiful and scenic location right on the shore of Lake Winnipeg with many historic buildings around the park. We believe Geocachers will fall in love with the scenery.
We have decided to go with a back to basics approach this year, due to the change in venue and the lack of full services, compared to previous years at Birds Hill Park.
