After spending a few minutes here, you will be ready to hunt for your first geocache. You'll also learn a bit about the Global Positioning System, which is the technology behind the activity."


Geocaching With Kids from About. "Ask your children if they want to go outdoors for a hike, and you'll likely hear moans of protest as they turn back to their screens. Invite them on a high-tech treasure hunt for a "geocache," (pronounced geo-cash) and they'll start peppering you with questions as they put on their shoes and head for the door. The outdoor adventure game of geocaching combines cool technology with the thrill of finding a hidden box of mystery prizes – no wonder kids find it irresistible. More advanced versions of the game include multi-step puzzles, and trackable traveling objects such as geocoins and travel bugs, so there are plenty of new challenges to keep kids interested in future outings"

Netball "Fast, fun, feminine", netball is the most popular women's team sport in the world. Netball is similar to basketball, but with very different rules. Netball is played worldwide, especially in many former British colonies of the Commonwealth, (over 70 countries) under the umbrella of the IFNA. Here are the history and basic rules, as posted at Netball Australia. Enough talk! Let's watch some videos - Scotland vs. Wales (1:22), Netball Scotland promotional video (2:48), Ultimate trick shot- England Netball stars (1:16), Australia v. New Zealand - two top national teams in overtime (15:00, watch as much as you like), Australia v Jamaica Netball (9:40, ditto), and many more on YouTube. This is not a "girly" game! These girls & women SWEAT, and get shoved, blocked, knocked down, exhausted, etc.

How to play netball:

Orienteering for Kids "Objectives - Fifth and sixth grade students will learn and practice:

  • How to use a compass
  • To follow a map to a specific location
  • To follow written directions to a specific location
  • How to recognize a topographical map and explain its function
  • This is a complete lesson plan and layout for orienteering.
  • This is how it was done before GPS.
  • We think everyone should know how to use a good compass
  • and how to read a topo map.

    US Orienteering Federation "Orienteering is the sport of navigation with map and compass. It's easy to learn, but always challenging. The object is to run, walk, ski, or mountain bike to a series of points shown on the map, choosing routes—both on and off trail—that will help you find all the points and get back to the finish in the shortest amount of time. The points on the course are marked with orange and white flags and punches, so you can prove you've been there. Each 'control' marker is located on a distinct feature, such as a stream junction or the top of a knoll. Orienteering is often called the 'thinking sport' because it involves map reading and decision-making in addition to a great workout."
