Branch Commissioners Geocache Challenge

Barbara - Parents - 7 months ago (24 May 16)

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

As you know this year celebrates 100 years of Cub Scouts. The Gilberton Cub Scout Group as part of this celebration is taking part in the Branch Commissioners Challenge. The Branch Commissioners Challenge contains six different parts that are being released over the year. We have almost completed part one and are working towards part two and three. Part three is based on outdoors. Part of this challenge is to find and log 100 Geocaches.

In order to achieve this I have created a Gilberton Cubs Geocache user name. The Geocache app that I have registered with is free to download via google play, apple and windows play. There is also a website. The website address is The user name for the group is 1st Gilberton Cub Sc, the password is Mowgli. If possible if you would like to go geocaching as a family can you please help us to get our 100 caches by using this app and user name. When you finds a cache can you please write a message on the app saying ‘another cache found by the 1St Gilberton Cub Scout Group’ then put your first name.

I would like to run a Geocaching night next term so please do not log any of the caches that are near the hall.
