|Trick-or-Cache offered three times on Oct. 20 in Antioch Park|
Experience Trick-or-Cache this Halloween through a program being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District in late October.
Trick-or-Cache is the name of the Halloween-themed program, which is for all ages. Participants will search for caches filled with candy and trinkets hidden around Antioch Park using Global Positioning Systems (GPS). GPS units, a tutorial, and meal, are included during this modern-day scavenger hunt. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Participants registering as a family will be loaned one GPS unit per family. Those registering as individuals will each be loaned a GPS unit. Costumes are encouraged, and those registering for the evening session should bring a flashlight. Join us after your haunted hunt for hotdogs, s’mores, and spooky stories around the fire circle.
To find this program in the My JCPRD 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.”
