Letterboxing & Geocaching on Girl Scout property:
Letterboxing trails at camp (all properties)
Geocaching locations at camp (all properties)
*These trails are used by Girl Scouts year-round, and sometimes the elements and usage take their toll on the quality of the cache or letterbox. If you use one of the trails and find damaged materials or a box is missing, please email details of the issue to the Outdoor Program Manager.
Letterboxing & Geocaching off Girl Scout property:
If you are taking girls to another community space and you’d like to Letterbox or Geocache, check out www.letterboxing.org or www.geocaching.com for other trails.
Creating a new trail:
If your troop is interested in creating a trail for other troops to use on Girl Scout camp property, please contact the Outdoor Program Manager. This is a great way to help other troops have more options when they go to camp, and it's a great team-building activity for your troop!
