We apologize for the delay – Geocache Locations will be out by May 23th.
If you’re new to geocaching, it is a treasure hunt style of game where participants use a GPS to hide and find caches. Caches are waterproofed boxes that contain trinkets and a logbook. Visitors are invited to record when you were there and to take one of the trinkets. For a more detailed explanation, here is a good page on what is Geocaching in Southern Ontario all about.
For our first time Adventures, here is how you decode the encrypted Geocache clues.

The trick to decoding is to divide the alphabet in half and exchange letters based on the encrypted clues given. Example:
T can be exchanged for the letter above, which is G
B can be exchanged for the letter below, which is O
When you completely decode the clue, it will provide specific information on the location of the Geocache.

GPS devices are available at all Bruce County Library Branches (18 GPS devices total). They can be borrowed with a library card (you can attain a library card with proof of temporary address in Bruce County and proof of permanent ‘home’ address).
Enjoy the treasure hunt with the Adventure Passport!
