Help Wanted Geocaching Camp

Help Wanted Geocaching Camp

Postby Tatanka49 » Sat Mar 05, 2011 10:55 am

Hi all--

If you remember from my dinering event and on previous posts on this forum, I announced that GNYC would be doing a GC camp this summer. This is the official announcement for Geocaching week at Ten Mile River Scout camps this summer (August 14-20). TMR is located about 120 miles from NYC in Narrowsburg NY in Sullivan County. If anyone is available to help out either a few days or the whole week or if you have scouts or Venturers who are interested in joining us, please let me know. I am particularly interested in puzzle cachers, night cachers, Earth cachers, and people willing to teach a session. We can provide 2 person wall tents or a cabin and meals are all in the dining hall. Scouting background is not necessary but you will need to take youth protection training on line.

I don't have everyone's e-mails so if you can pass the word, it would be most appreciated. There will be a TMR geocoin and some other neat souvenirs. We are hoping for 36 campers and leaders.

The rough plan is orientation Sunday night, Hunting caches on a known GC trail on Monday (1.5 miles long with about 30 caches of various types on it that I put in last year), classes on types of hides. Then scouts will be broken into groups who will plan and place a series of caches for the others to find. I would also like some puzzle caches in the mix and some night caches. Thursday will probably be a full day canoe trip on the Delaware River. I also want to go to State Game lands across the river in PA and do some 'live' caches there. The week will culminate with a GC gathering open to the GCing public at our museum on property making it a pot luck lunch of some type. Everything is still in discussion but we are getting closer to an actual program.

If you have questions or ideas, please let me know.
