Frequently Asked Questions

What is Geocaching?

 It is a high tech treasure hunt that you use your smartphone or GPS device to find hidden boxes otherwise known as caches. Ohio KidMin caches have been specifically designed for Ohio’s kids to educate about missionaries all over the world and promote BGMC while having some family fun!

How do I find a geocache?
  1. Enter the GPS coordinates into your smartphone or GPS device to lead you to a cache. These GPS coordinates can be found on the BGMC Geocache Map. If using a smartphone, you can use an app, such as Google Maps or Waze, and simply type in the coordinates. Using the satellite view can make it easier when you get close. As we all know, GPS directions aren’t perfect but this is where the fun begins. When you get within 30 feet start searching the area for the hidden cache. The cache will contain trinkets, missionary trading cards, a logbook, and educational material about a missionary and the country they serve. 
  2. Bring your own trinkets to trade, if you take something out, put something back in. Trinkets can be anything from a cool rock, foreign money, a refrigerator magnet, or that McDonald’s toy sitting in the backseat of your car. 
  3. Please, take some time to read about and pray as a family for that country and missionary. Write your name in the logbook and put the cache back as you found it!
What's next?

As you travel around to the rest of the state and find more geocaches, don’t forget to keep praying for the missionaries you have already found!
