First of all we want to say that the geocaching activity at Camp Hobe was a hit again this year!

The kids and counselors are just the best!

We want to thank everyone who donated and the cachers who were lucky enough to help out. Having the 12 gps units that Magellan let us use, not to mention having Jeff the rep. there to help the first week, saved the day.

We did have some bumps in the road, on the 12th, two cachers who were going to help ended up spending that morning in the emergency room. Nothing too serious but that did leave us a little shorthanded and also a little late (they are definitely forgiven).  After we were able to start placing the caches we noticed that the grounds crew did a really good job at cutting back a lot of the growth.  Not really the best for hiding caches but we were able to find places although we it probably made it a lot easier for the kids. I mean there’s one tree with all these rocks or branches around it. In other areas that we had planned to use the vegetation was gone altogether and we had to find another place to hide a cache. We were able to pull it all together and the rest of the day went swell with 102 kids in 3 rotations.

For teen week we used the same spots for the caches so it made placement go faster. We had just under 60 teens in 2 rotations. Those kids are just too good! On both rotations we finished up early, we’ll have to place more extra caches nest year!

We collected $305 and spent $182.96 which leaves us with $122.04 for next year. There were some other items that we couldn't find at Oriental Trading Company that we purchased, that was our contribution.
