You have found your awesome next adventure! Thank you for joining us for the “Visit Centre County” GeoTour as we show you some of our most favorite caching locations to include local and state parks, beautiful vistas, and historical points of interest! Our team of GeoTour planners have worked very hard to put together various cache types to keep the GeoTour interesting and challenging; however, no geocache should be beyond a 3/3.5 for terrain or difficulty, with maybe one or two exceptions!
We are pleased to show you around our County and hope that you will enjoy the GeoTour and complete your passport to collect your custom GeoTour Geocoin (minimum number of caches required to receive coin)!
This three-year tour will launch on Saturday, July 18, 2020 and will run through July 17, 2023! July 18 is the day that the participating cache list will be released on www.geocaching.com and that the passports will be available for in-person pick-up! Take as much time as you need to complete the tour; there are 58 caches included in the county-wide tour!
If you will be geocaching with some young ‘uns, we have a Junior Geocacher Passport available for children, 12 yrs. and under, with a special prize for their hard work too!
To get started, grab your GPS, download or pick-up your Passport, and start searching! PLEASE NOTE: Only one passport per individual or group (couple, family, friends).
To qualify for the "Visit Centre County" GeoTour geocoin, you'll need to find 45 of the 58 caches and their respective codewords! Registration is not needed for this event. You can download your passport or pick it up in person at CRPR's main office (open Monday-Friday, 8 AM-5 PM, by appointment), or by picking it up at the Happy Valley Adventure Bureau's Visitors Center at 800 Park Avenue starting July 18. You should check the Visitor Center's hours before you go! When you've finished finding all the caches you desire, you'll turn in your passport at the Happy Valley Adventure Bureau for verification and coin retrieval.
Watch for more details once we get closer to the launch date!!
