L&A Geocaching and Games
So… what is geocaching?
Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played by adventure seekers using GPS devices or smartphones. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, and share the experience online. Every geocache should contain a log book for you to sign, showing that you’ve been there. There are also treasures in them but the general rule is if you take something, leave something of equal or greater value.
Geocaches can be found anywhere. They can be as small as your fingernail or as big as a toolbox. It’s an amazing way to discover places you’ve never been before and a whole lot of fun for the entire family.

L&A geocaching games
In 2017, we celebrated our nation’s 150th birthday in L&A. Find each of our four Canada-themed containers and reveal the coordinates of a secret geocache location.
All the containers are located here in Lennox & Addington County, so don’t worry, you won’t need to travel across the country to find them.
Fifteen containers, uniquely painted by the Greater Napanee & Area Arts Association, have been placed throughout L&A. The placement of the caches are intended to help you explore our communities, learn about our unique history, and witness the spectacular beauty of L&A.
Inside each container is a special symbol that can be ‘rubbed’ onto the appropriate spot of the passport. Once all 15 geocaches have been located, redeem the completed passport in exchange for a trackable ‘MEGA Passport Tour 2.0’ geocoin (limit of 1 per valid cacher name).
In addition to being able to hand in your completed passport at our MEGA event you can return (or mail) it to:
DLA Passport Tour 2.0
c/o Lennox & Addington County
97 Thomas Street East
Napanee, ON K7R 4B9
Your passport will be returned along with your new trackable geocoin!
Official passports can be picked up at the address above.
The Discover L&A County Passport Tour 2.0 now has a ‘free space’. For anyone that has a passport book or a printed off sheet, YOU DO NOT NEED TO RETRIEVE THE AMHERSTVIEW CACHE. You now only need 14 ‘rubs’ in your passport, not the original 15.
