Geocaching

Welcome to our Kohl's Fit GeoTour Adventure!

Join the Treasure Hunt

Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game that can involve the entire family using GPS-enabled devices such as a smart phone. Families can navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the caches (containers) we have hidden at that location. The caches on our treasure hunt vary from micro (meaning very small) to regular (the size of a large prescription bottle). Our goal is for you to make this a family experience creating a fun memory and being active together along the way.

Here's what you need to know and do:

  • First Print the Passport.- Click Here
  • If you have not already downloaded a geocaching free app on your smart phone you will need to by going to google play on an Android or the app store on an iPhone.
  • Each cache that is given a specific code. They always start with a GC. This is what we will refer to as the "GC Code" located on the passport.
  • Once you have the app, type in the GC Code off the passport and it will take you to the cache.
  • We have many caches hidden throughout the Valley of the Sun.
  • Once you have found the cache, there is a paper log hidden inside that you will write the date and your name on when you find the cache as well as marking that you found it on your smart phone geocaching log.
  • On each paper log is a yellow circle. In the yellow circle is a symbol or letter.
  • Once you find the symbol or letter for that cache write it on your passport in the blank square next to the GC CODE.
  • Did you find at least 15 caches and the symbols? If so, you can redeem the treasure map by scanning or sending a picture of it to kohlsfitgeo@phoenixchildrens.com.
  • We will then mail you a one of a kind Kohl'sFIT Trackable.
  • We will only give one trackable per geocaching account and mailing address a year.
  • Prizes will only be sent to the first 150.
  • Post pictures of your adventure at #KohlsFITgeo.

Have a Fun and Safe Adventure!
