Geocaching on York Township Property

What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is a high-tech, outdoor treasure-hunting game in which participants use GPS-enabled devices to hide and seek containers called “geocaches” anywhere in the world.

Letterboxing is an intriguing and artistic treasure-hunt style outdoor activity in which participants hide small containers that can be found by cracking codes and following clues.

Adventure Lab is a Geocaching app and platform which allows you to create, play and share location experiences. It guides players through the process of finding clues, solving puzzles, and completing adventures.

These activities can be enjoyed by people of all ages and are a great way to spend time with the family outdoors!
