St. Clements Geocache Tour

Mother and Son Geocaching

Mother and Son Geocaching

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt! One of the fastest growing forms of tourism, all you need is a handheld GPS unit and your sense of adventure!

The St. Clements Historic Geocache Tour helps you locate historic sites in the R.M. of St. Clements. Use your handheld GPS unit to locate and discover the hidden geocaches (boxes) within the municipality and collect the “memory cards” inside.

The R.M. of St. Clements Heritage Committee created these 24 geocaches in 2009 to commemorate the R.M.’s 125th anniversary and over the years created nine more. As of August, 2018 geocaches have been found over 5200 times!

Participants assume all risks involved, and are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the conditions of areas to be searched, adequately preparing for these conditions, and conducting themselves safely and responsibly. The Rural Municipality of St. Clements assumes no liability and participants release and indemnify the Municipality for any loss, damage or claim that may occur as a result of participation in the St. Clements Historic Geocache Tour.

Step I: Obtain a handheld GPS units (there are a variety of GPS units on the market – before beginning any tour, familiarize yourself with the operation instructions).

Step II: Turn the GPS unit ON and wait for the unit to acquire a satellite signal.

Step III: Once the unit has acquired a satellite signal, use the MENU feature to locate the section entitled COORDINATES. If your unit does not have this option then search the MENU for the section which will allow you to enter a new location in the form of numbered coordinates.

Step IV: Enter the coordinates of the geocache site you want to find in your GPS unit.

Step V: If your GPS unit is Voice Lead, you will receive instructions where to travel. If not, follow the satellite picture on your GPS unit until you reach the destination point you entered through the coordinates (each GPS unit has a variety of arrows and symbols to lead you on your way).

Step VI: Once you arrive at the destination, use your GPS unit to get as close to the final coordinate location as possible. Remember, you still need to search for the St. Clements Geocache Box (most GPS units are accurate to within 10 feet – however, it may still take some time to find).

Step VII: After you have found the cache, take a historic memory card for your collection, sign our logbook, and return the cache as it appeared before you arrived so that everyone can have a chance to find it.

If there are any problems with this geocaching tour, please contact the R.M. of St. Clements Heritage Committee.
