A Gift to Get Your Child Outdoors: Geomate.jr Geocaching Device!

If your kids are like mine, they love to sit indoors and play video games or watch TV. Fortunately, my boys also like sports, so that will entice them to play outside, but I recently found out about another great idea for getting kids outdoors: Geomate.jr Geocaching Device! If you’re not familiar with geocaching, it’s basically treasure hunting using the wonders of satellite technology! The Geomate.jr is especially designed for kids. Here are some of the amazing features and benefits of the Geomate.jr:
  • Great group activity for scouts, summer camps, schools, birthday parties and more
  • Preloaded with 250,000 geocache locations covering all 50 states
  • European, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand versions are available
  • Acts as an electronic compass, guiding you to within yards of a geocache
  • Size of a granola bar and built tough to take a beating
  • Contoured grip fits easily in hands of kids or adults
  • Update kit is available for access to even more geocaches
  • Available at REI, L.L. Bean, Gander Mount, Eastern Mountain Sports, Target, Amazon,, and more

My boys are cub scouts, and this is going to be a great activity for them to do with their den. I’m sure the boys will have a lot of fun on their treasure hunt! I hope you’ll consider the Geomate.jr for your kids this year. They’ll love that it’s “techy,” and you’ll love that it gets them outdoors! Visit Geomate.jr through the links below.
