Rogaining & Geocaching in Castlemaine

Rogaining & Geocaching in Castlemaine
Join Girl Guides from all over Victoria for a fun filled day of in the outdoors!

In 2019 we have new and fun activities for all participants!

Rogaining is planning a course using a map and compass to find as many check-points as possible in a set time period. Explore the local flora as you walk to find as many check points as possible in the rogaining challenge course.

Geocaching is using a handheld GPS (Global Positioning System) to find small treasures hidden around a designated area. Working in small groups, you will use a handheld GPS to locate over 30 small geocaches. 

You will learn how to read a compass, understand symbols and gradients on a map, use a handheld GPS, and have heaps of fun in a non-competitive environment. 

Compasses and GPS devices will be supplied on the day.

The day is suitable for Guides of all ages and skill levels.

A BBQ lunch will be provided for all participants. Please bring your own morning and afternoon tea.

Limited places are  available. No late registrations will be accepted.
