Auburn Geocaching Adventure 2015

2017 Auburn's Geocaching Adventure set for September 29 & 30

For 2017, we feature pieces of art around the City of Auburn and its parks. Be sure you read each cache description to learn more about the beautiful pieces of art.

Night Cache - Friday, September 29, 2017, 6:00-7:30 PM @ Rainbow Cafélinks to external site

Geocaching Adventure - Saturday, September 30, 2017, 8:00 - 9:00 AM @ Auburn Community & Events Centerlinks to external site 910 9th Street SE, Auburn WA 98002

This is a gathering of geocachers to visit with other geocachers from near and far and discuss the fun, beautiful, and interesting geocaches you've been finding lately. You know how all geocachers love to tell of their victories and the fun and successes in their finds, or pain and disappointment in a DNF. Maybe you can help another cacher with a hint for a cache they could not find. We will provide light refreshments to get you going early in the day, and maybe give a boost to your cache hunting later on. After the event, we invite you to partake in a fun day of hunting some new geocaches we are releasing for you to enjoy which will help you discover beautiful pieces of art in locations that are around the City of Auburn. If this sounds like fun, plan to stick around after the event to pick up a geo-passport, and use your smartphone or GPS to find the 20 new caches in this year's Adventure. We will have someone available to load the coordinates on your GPS but believe that all geocaches will be in cell service area for those using a smart phone app. Your reward? A beautifully designed coin by Nepokama.

The 2017 Auburn Geocaching Adventure starts on Friday evening, September 29, with a night cache at the Rainbow Cafélinks to external site then through downtown Auburn. On Saturday, September 30 the Geocaching Adventure is at the Auburn Community & Events Centerlinks to external site at Les Gove Park.

Geocaching is an outdoor high-tech treasure hunting game where participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates using GPS-enabled devices (including smart phones) to find hidden objects. Geocaching is fun for all ages and everyone is welcome to participate in this free event, which is great for families, groups of friends, scout groups and organizations.​ 

The Auburn Geocaching Adventure 2017 challenges you to find a specific number of geocaches. A passport (PDF) and map with hints (PDF) show where you can find 20 amazing new caches in the Auburn area. The caches will be released at 9:00 AM on Saturday, September 30, 2017.  We have 200 coins to give away and will continue to have this posted until all coins are gone.
