|Spring Break Geocaching Event is March 14 in Antioch Park|
Looking for a way to keep the kids busy this spring break? Join the fun of a scavenger hunt on March 14 during a Spring Break Geocaching Event being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District at Antioch Park.
This modern-day scavenger hunt is for all ages. Participants will receive the use of a GPS (Global Positioning System) unit, how-to instruction, and a new prize at each cache they uncover. After the hunt, join us at Shelter #4 for hotdogs and s’mores. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under Fun for All and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “geocaching.”
