Geocaching Merit Badge

011215-GeocachingMeritBadgeAm I alone in thinking it’s WAY cool that the Boy Scouts of America have a merit badge for geocaching? How awesome is that?!

Part of the requirements are:

Explain the following terms used in geocaching: waypoint, log, cache, accuracy, difficulty and terrain ratings, attributes, trackable. Choose five additional terms to explain to your counselor.

I’m glad to see this badge isn’t JUST finding or placing a cache!

You can read more at Boy Scouts of America. I wonder if the Girl Scouts have something similar…
