Description: Young and old alike can enjoy this modern-day game of "hide and seek" using GPS coordinates for clues. While we're finding easter eggs in a local park, we'll learn how to use a GPS unit, including creating waypoints, plotting a course and transferring route information from a map to a GPS. This course will help fulfill the requirements for the Boy Scout Geocaching Merit Badge. Under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.
