Mission Statement:

The Georgia Geocachers Association (GGA), the oldest Geocaching club in the world, is a group of people whose purpose is to encourage, publicize and support Geocaching in the state of Georgia. We meet monthly to share stories and to develop the sport within Georgia.  We have a state-wide scope, supporting both individual cachers and regional clubs.


Upcoming Events:

GGA August 2021! Hydropalooza!

Join us on Sunday, August 15th at Picnic Shelter #4 at Georgia State Park's newest park, Don Carter for some water fun!  The event is from 11:00 a.m until 2:00 p.m.

Did you know that Don Carter has 4 different kayak trails?  Did you know they have a beach?  Did you know they also have 14 miles of hiking trails?  Did you know there are geocaches in this park, including the Georgia State Parks Challenge cache and that there may be more published before this event?

Come paddle with the GGA!   Bring your own kayak or boat, rent a kayak, paddleboard or aquacycle from the park, or just come hang out on the beach or in the picnic shelter!

We will provide hotdogs, chips, and water or you can bring your own picnic lunch and/or something to share!  Or just hang out with a bunch of really cool geocachers!

Event is rain or shine, but let's hope the rain isn't the water!

Please log your will attend so we can make sure there are enough dogs for all!

The event is free to attend, however parking is $5 unless you have a Georgia State Parks pass.

The GGA is turning 20 and the party starts with the Birthday Celebration Event (GC9AZY5) on June 12th! To keep the party going, a bunch of little penguin keychain racers want to travel across the USA in a celebratory TB road race!

The race itself will start in mid June (exact date TBD) and run throughout the end of the year. The penguin racers will receive their travel information and be released collectively from a locked TB hotel. At the end of the race, prizes will be awarded based on the following:

  1. Most overall miles travelled
  2. Most states visited 
  3. Most gallery images acquired

To participate in the TB race, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Procure a travel bug tag, activate it and bring it with you to the GGA birthday event or send it with someone else*.
  2. The tag must be smaller than a credit card and have a hole in it so the racer can be attached. The tag must have 0 miles on it.
  3. Enter your TB in the race. There will be a sign up sheet at the birthday event. Please only one racer per geo-nick  

*If you are unable to attend the event or have someone bring your travel bug tag, you can still participate by mailing your tag along with your name and geo-nick to the address below by June 19, 2021:

4258 Colony East Drive, Stone Mountain, GA 30083 

We hope to have a great race and get lots of photos from around the USA! Race updates will be posted on FB and the GGA website!
