VIDEO: Clayton goes geocaching for Family Day fun

Families gather at Clayton Park for an afternoon of treasure hunting

Dozens of families found a fun way to spend a day outdoors with their loved ones this Family Day weekend, heading to Clayton Park on Saturday afternoon to check out a free, City-sponsored geocaching event.

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game in which participants navigate to specific co-ordinates using a GPS-enabled device. The word “geocache” is a combination of “geography” and “caching,” which is the process of hiding a cache (in most cases, the cache is a container holding a small item).

Think of it as a treasure hunt in which a virtual ‘X’ marks the spot.
