Young Learners go “Geocaching”

What is Geocaching?

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques (maps) to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world.

The day was organised by our Tutors including our very own volunteer member from the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue team to visit the Garwnant Visitors Centre in the heart of The Brecon Beacons National Park.

The group was split in to two teams, the first team took part in the geocaching where they had to find hidden tokens using satmaps (satellite maps) to give them a location.  From there it was searching for the token.  The ‘bunny’ gave them a reward of five pounds but was a little more difficult to find.  All bunnies were accounted for at the end of the day by both teams.  The second team went on a wildlife tour.  They were shown around the animal route with an introduction to ESDGC then after lunch the teams changed over.”following keiths instructions

The day was fine and sunny and all who took part said that they had really enjoyed both activities. Well Done to All!
