Spring Break Geocaching Event is March 16 at Antioch Park

Looking for a way to keep the kids busy this spring break? Join the fun of a scavenger hunt on March 16 during Spring Break Geocaching Event being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District at Antioch Park.

This modern-day scavenger hunt is for all ages. Participants will receive the use of a GPS (Global Positioning System) unit, how-to instruction, and a new prize at each cache they uncover. After the hunt, join us at the fire pit for hotdogs and s'mores. To find this program in the JCPRD’s 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.”

This program will meet on the patio of the east side of Building A in Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, beginning at 9:30 a.m. The cost for one two-hour session is $10 per person for Johnson County residents or $11 per person for nonresidents. A family rate for up to four people is offered at $20 for Johnson County residents or $22 for nonresidents. Preregistration is required for this program.
