Due to the weather, the scouts spent some time inside working with Garmin associates to learn more about Geocaching as a hobby, as well as how to use the OpenCaching site. Scouts were able to load a geocache on to their device then head outside to find it. They were also able to check out which caches were close to their homes and schools so they can go geocaching on their own after they got their merit badge.
In true Boy Scout fashion, they were not phased one bit by the cold weather or rain. Ready in their ponchos and raincoats, they were able to go outside and find the cache, and also test the durability of the GPS. The scouts had a great time, and look forward to geocaching more once the weather warms up!
