What Is Geocaching?

Geocaching is an outdoor game that uses a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver. It's an inexpensive, interactive experience that has players finding -- and hiding -- containers called caches. While kids run around, they can learn more about their town's geography or explore a new area they're visiting.
