Junior Girl Scout Troop #30438 from Orchard Elementary School recently earned their Geocache Badge. The purpose of this patch is to increase the girls’ knowledge and understanding of geo-caching or high tech treasure hunting. A GPS receiver is needed; many cell phones have this feature.
The girls used GPS to locate two Geocaches at William Syzmanski Park. People who participate in geocaching create a fun code name and a special mark to use when they write in the logbooks found in the cache boxes. The girls left items representing their troop and signed the journal.
