Planning a pirate event? Here lies some helpful ideas!

Avast me hearties! It’s time to plan, for the pirate events must be prepared before the geocachers land! The last day to submit events for July 15 and 16 is July 1, 2017 so start yer planning now so as not to miss out on all the fun!

There are really only three things every geocaching event needs in order to stand out: a theme, entertaining games, and geocachers! Follow some of the pirate themed ideas below and you’ll be leading the crew in no time, Cap’n!

First, let your attendees know they’re in the right spot by hoisting a Jolly Roger flag or marking the spot with an X using sidewalk chalk.


It’s not everyday that you get to host a pirate event, so go all in and create your own weathered and aged log book in a bottle!

A pirates life isn’t always easy but there’s always time for fun and games! Try organizing a treasure hunt within the event! Give all guests a series of clues that will lead to a supply of treasure maps. Make the treasure maps lead to the buried treasure which could be anything your budget allows, such as chocolate coins, Mary Hyde tags, or even the logbook!

Alas, you’ve planned your event, and got it approved, so now you’re thinking, “What’s left to do?” Well my friend, you spread the word! Tell your friends and muggles too, for the search for lost treasure you’ll want a crew. The more the merrier on July 15 or 16, 2017. Don’t forget to visit Shop Geocaching for the entire lost treasure of Mary Hyde collection!

If you prefer to cache alone don’t fret! You can go it alone and fare the seas but sailing alone means you’re never at ease…
