|New Geocaching Mystery Hunt set for Oct. 15 at Matt Ross Community Center|
This program is called Geocaching Mystery Hunt and is for ages 50 plus. Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which participants use a GPS receiver to hide and seek containers called "geocaches." For this particular program, each person will have a different spot to find a piece of the puzzle. After all the pieces have been found, participants will put them together and see what they have. This program utilizes GPS units donated to JCPRD by Olathe-based Garmin International in 2007. Search for the keyword "adventure" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
Geocaching Mystery Hunt will take place beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty, Overland Park. The cost for one two-and-one-half -hour adventure is $9 per person for Johnson County residents or $10 per person for nonresidents.
While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
The JCPRD's ACTIVITIES catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pick-up at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, see the District's website at www.jcprd.com.
