Essex Jamboree 2016
Geocaching was an activity in the On TV Zone at Essex Jamboree, working with a great team of volunteers we had 24 Garmin eTrex10 GPS with 24 Geocaches hidden around this massive Scout and Guide event. 7 days of very busy activity, including an intro to caching and the use of GPS, each programmed with 3 random caches.
It was a great experience was planning for 2020 but it was unable to go ahead.
Ilford East District Fun Day
Geocaching Scouts UK invited to rug some geocaching at this great district event by the Ilford East Scout Activity Team…
We placed caches around the event and had our table display kit, this event also had a visit from Bear Grylls who was then the new chief scouts, you can see the helicopter he arrived on in the background. He was amazing with the young people, everyone was so excited.
