Geo-Hunt Activity

Instructions:


Tuesday before dinner we will have a block of time available for CAMPPPers to participate in an active hunt for a number of caches. The activity is a mix between Geocaching and a Scavenger Hunt. You will need to form a team with someone owning an iPhone or another Smart Phone with GPS access. Your task will be to navigate your way to the coordinates provided, read the clue and answer the associated question. The team with the most correct answers by dinnertime will be declared the winner!

On your iPhone, you'll need a program that identifies your GPS Coordinates. If you're looking at investing a buck in a good application, I would recommend an app called Locational. But, if you're on a budget, Coordinates Locator is a decent free alternative.

TIP: Longitude and Latitude are like y and x coordinates respectively. If you find North, you can walk North-South to match the Longitudinal coordinate first, then turn 90 degrees East to walk East-West in order to match the Latitudinal coordinate next.
