CFNA Pop Up Skillshare: Geocaching & Letterboxing
Sat, April 22, 2017, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
This event is another installment of the CFNA Pop-Up Skillshare events.
All around our neighbourhood there are hidden treasures, planted by people who geocache and letterbox. If you are looking for a mini-adventure close to home then this skillshare is for you.
Geocaching and Letterboxing use the same premise of using clues ( GPS coordinates for geocaching and written clues for letterboxing) to find hidden treasures in urban, park and forest settings. Geocaching boxes often have log books and little trinkets you can swap, whereas letterboxing includes hidden stamps that you can take impressions of.
This skillshare is free of charge and designed to engage the whole family. Kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Meet at the playground/community board in Weber Park. We will start with an introduction to the activities, how to's, tips and tricks and a question period and then you will receive clues to look for hidden treasures in and around the park.
What to Bring:
- GPS (handheld device for best results but your smart-phone will work as well)
- Comfortable and practical shoes
