Didn't Get Pre-Registered? That's OK - Just show up!

This is a full weekend event you won't want to miss! Geocaching is an outdoor, family-friendly, hi-tech, scavenger hunt activity, that blends GPS technology with exercise and fun! This event is entertaining for both individual geocachers and families. What makes this event even better? It's FREE! (But...you'll need your own GPS device to participate.)

Our Berea Geocaching Weekend has something for everyone, regardless of your skill level, age level, mobility level, or event-type interests. We offer an action packed weekend with a full schedule of events, which will keep you going non-stop, or allow you to relax and geocache at your own pace - you get to decide what works for you! This event has been going strong since 2014, occurring on the 3rd weekend of October every year.

We're also Launching Our 2nd Official Berea GeoTour During This Event!

An official Berea GeoTour means that we are designating a series of geocaches that will become permanently available on www.Geocaching.com. These geocaches will launch on the same weekend as our annual event. Don't miss this 2nd year launch! Our first inaugural GeoTour last year had phenomenal success and brought geocachers to Berea from around the world!!!!

By finding all the GeoTour geocaches, you will earn a special unique collectible prize - one you can only get by participating in our GeoTour! Geocachers will have one year to locate our GeoTour geocaches, so tell everyone you know to stop in Berea after October and complete our 2nd GeoTour challenge!

PRE-REGISTRATION IS VERY IMPORTANT:

Individuals who pre-register by September 30th, 2017 will receive a free commemorative event t-shirt when they attendthe event. This is made possible thanks to the amazing support of our Berea business community, so please support those loyal businesses. (If you miss the Sept. 30th deadline, you can still participate in the event for free, but you WILL NOT qualify to receive a free event t-shirt. The commemorative event t-shirts are customized each year and are part of a limited edition. Extra shirts may be available for $15 each (on-site), based on any pre-registrations who don't show up to this event. All pre-registered geocachers must physically check in, on-site, by Saturday morning (10.21.17) by 9:30am, or forfeit their shirt to those in attendance who are eager to buy available t-shirts from our event.

We'll Be Hosting a 2017 Geocache Container Contest!

Rules: One entry per participant. The container will become the property of the Berea Chamber of Commerce (you are donating your container to the Chamber so we can use it in future geocaching weekends/GeoTours). Lastly, the container must be family-friendly, but can be any size or difficulty level.

Entries will be put to the vote by geocachers attending this year's event. Each entry will be on display (we'll supply collection containers), and the entry which collects the most monetary donations, will win a prize!

100% of donations received from our container contest go directly to our local Berea Food Bank. (*Participation in the container contest is optional, but it's lots of fun to find your container at a future event!)
