School's Out Geocaching Event is March 29 in Antioch Park

Schools Out Geocache

Spend time outdoors with the family during a day in late March when school is out during a geocaching event being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in Antioch Park.

This event is called School’s Out Geocache, and is a modern-day scavenger hunt for all ages. Each group will receive the loan of a GPS (Global Positioning System)  device and given instructions on how to find the caches hidden around Antioch Park. Receive a prize after finding the caches, then enjoy lunch and s‘mores. Those registering as individuals will each receive a GPS unit to use; participants registering as a group of four or less will be loaned one GPS unit; those registering as a group of seven or less will be loaned two GPS units. 

To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under special events  and then under fun for all. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search,  look for the keyword “geocaching.”

This program will meet at Shelter #2 in Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, beginning at 11 a.m. The cost for one two-hour session is $10 for individuals for Johnson County residents or $11 per individual for nonresidents. A family rate for up to four people is offered at $30  for Johnson County residents or $33 for nonresidents, and a rate for up to seven people is $40 for Johnson County residents or $44 for nonresidents. Preregistration is required for this program.
