Geocaching

Geocaching

Geocaching is a real-life outdoor treasure hunt. The idea is for players to hunt for hidden containers called geocaches, using a smart phone or GPS. They may then share their experiences on-line. This activity is free and is widely enjoyed by people of all ages around the world.

The Conseil économique et coopératif de la Saskatchewan (CÉCS) would like to use bilingual geocaching to promote Saskatchewan’s Francophone regions and their cultural, tourist, and community heritage. The CÉCS has the tools required to support community organizations, businesses, and individuals who would like to create bilingual geocaches in their regions.

Would you like to participate in geocaching in your region? If so, contact the nearest CÉCS economic development officer

150 GEOCACHES FOR CANADA 150!

Discover our communities with Canada’s 150th Anniversary! Through this project, the CÉCS aims to discover and promote important Francophone places and spaces across the province of Saskatchewan using geocaches. To do this, 150 bilingual geocaches will be created in order to discover these places, moments and spaces that are unique to Saskatchewan.

Several activities are planned and will be carried out throughout the year. In addition to the creation of 150 bilingual geocaches, this project includes a contest to promote geocaches, training workshops on geocaching and the organization of a cleaning activity on 2 geocache sites.

Hoping to count the participating communities in large numbers, Happy 150th Anniversary of the Confederation!
