Night Geocaching

Add a twist to the traditional geocache!

Geocaching is a fun activity to get your Scouts outside and working together.  Who doesn't like a puzzle? Searching for something hidden based on a couple clues, some coordinates and GPS device.  Now, for a twist try this a night!

A night cache can really add a fun twist to the whole experience! These type of caches usually involve clues and reflective trail markers that light up as you shine a flash light.

Night Caches are best searched for in the dark. Not for the easily spooked, these caches come in all types — Traditional, Multi, Mystery, Wherigo caches amongst others. Make sure to come prepared with a flashlight or headlamp, some extra batteries, and maybe even a glow-in-the-dark pen.

To find Night Caches, you often have to follow reflectors that guide you to the hide or glow-in-the-dark ink that can only be seen in the dark and requires a UV flashlight.
