Geocaching at Potomac Overlook Park | September 2016
We learned a little about using a compass -- not just a smart phone -- and practiced by playing a game where we made and labeled a 100 foot compass with 16 scouts noting all of the Cardinal directions, followed directions using a compass, and then broke up into groups to search for the two caches.
We used the app called "Geocaching" made by Groundspeak, Inc. in case any scout families are interested in continuing the geocaching adventure.
Here is a link to the entire badge and remaining requirements. Good luck and find those caches!

A multi-troop picnic, exploration of Lacey Woods, games made up on the spot, a camp fire, s'mores, songs and skits, and Girl Scouts of all ages (Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors) from the different troops at Glebe made it happen. A truly magical evening!
