Geocaching with Kids in the Bay Area

Getting Started in Geocaching 

Cameron shows off a very small geocache he found.Most geocachers choose a nickname or "handle" to use in signing logs and for their geocaching.com account names. Some families share one team account name while others have an account or name for each family member.

Once you have decided on your name(s), you're ready to try out the game. Look for some local classes or clubs, and check out the classes, resources, and links posted on this site for more information.

Otherwise, you can just search for geocaches hidden near your home by searching for your zip code on the geocaching.com website.
