Not All Who Wander Are Lost
People geocache* because it’s a way to explore the world around them with friends and family and because it’s fun. Geocaching is a game that reveals a world beyond the everyday, where the possibility of a new discovery hides under a waterfall, in the forest and probably a short walk from where you are right now (literally).
In the spirit of discovery and wonder, we will be partnering with the non-profit Novel Lab Kids on Orcas Island. These budding novelists will hide literary-themed geocaches throughout the island to be discovered by festival-goers in April.
*Geocaching is an outdoor adventure in which players use a free mobile app or a GPS device to find cleverly hidden containers around the world. There are approximately 3 million active geocachers worldwide, with more than 830,000 active users in the U.S., more than 375,000 in Germany and more than 160,000 in the United Kingdom. More than 2.8 million geocaches are waiting to be found in over 180 countries.
