Experience a truly a-maze-ing adventure,
in the heart of the Fraser Valley.
For the first time since 2016,
the GPS Adventure Maze returns to CANADA!
What is the GPS Adventures Maze?
The GeoWoodstock XVIII (GC86VDF) organizing committee is proud to host an educational and interactive stroll through the game of Geocaching. This simple maze includes content that will be entertaining and interesting to anyone from those brand new to the game to the most seasoned geocacher. The GPS Adventures Exhibit icon will be earned by completing the walk through the exhibit and signing the log.
Please continue to read on below to understand what this experience will be like, how to attend, how to prepare for your visit, and how you can help with Canada's GPS Adventures Exhibit in Abbotsford, BC August 11 - 13, 2022.
The GPS Adventures Maze Canada is non-profit experience hosted by geocachers, for geocachers. This is only possible due to gracious sponsor donations and volunteer effort, and funding from GPS Adventures Maze Canada swag sales. Please consider supporting the production of this unique opportunity by commemorating your visit with some of the fun and unique products we will be offering. GPS Adventures Maze Canada product will be available at the venue during the three days of the exhibit.

Our a-Maze-ing volunteers will manage access in a fair manner between lines to ensure everyone has a chance to enjoy the maze.

How Can You Prepare for Your Visit?
We are anticipating very large crowds for this unique experience and our volunteers will do their best to ensure everyone gets the opportunity to enjoy their visit. During peak periods, it is possible that there may be up to a two hour wait, based on experiences from similar mazes elsewhere.
Now, we know this is Canada, but it can get quite hot in mid-August (80 - 85F, or 26 - 30C) so please plan appropriately if you wish to visit during peak periods, as the lineups may not be shaded from direct sunlight. Bring water (because a good geocacher always has their water) to stay hydrated, and a cheerful disposition to enjoy the company of the other geocachers who are also eager to experience the maze.
Stay up-to-date on the latest news regarding the Maze by signing up for the GeoWoodstock XVIII newsletter, and following us on Facebook and other social media.
How Can You Help With The GPS Adventures Maze Canada?
The first way anyone can help is to sign up as a volunteer, and our amazing volunteer coordinators (Team K2) will work with you to get you scheduled where they can. We will need volunteers to help assemble the maze, manage the operation and assist visitors, and then take it all down at the end of the event.
We are seeking sponsors for the GPS Adventures Maze Canada, so please watch this event page or follow us on social media for some announcements VERY SOON about how you can have your business or organization name highlighted on the maze panels.
