The BC Geocaching Association was formed in 2004 to provide a place for the geocachers of BC to connect with each other and share information about geocaching in our province.
What Does the BC Geocaching Association Do?
Our purpose is “to be the portal for geocaching in the province of BC”.
Besides operating our website we work with regional organizations to support and operate training programs for local geocachers and we have run training events in several areas of the province.
We have partnered with BC Parks to provide several popular geocaching programs.
We work with land managers and the volunteer reviewers to resolve issues surrounding geocaching in the province. We keep geocachers informed with links to policies for specific areas of BC.
We own two class sets of 10 GPS units that are available for loan to groups within BC. These are available by donation and the borrowers are responsible for return shipping costs and batteries for the units. They can be booked through [email protected] These sets are available to any organization or individual on a first come, first serve basis.
We also have two trackable BCGA banners available to BC geocaching groups.
We have run geocaching related contests province wide to encourage people to place excellent creative caches for all geocachers to enjoy.
We create our own geocoins to help fund our activities as well as for use as prizes for different functions. We also have clothing available to help you brag about your favorite activity.
