Sunday River Adds Geocaching to List of Summer Activities
Newry, Maine (June 10, 2010) – Geocaching: It’s treasure hunting with a technological twist and its coming to Sunday River just in time for the resort’s opening day on Friday, June 25.
“Geocaching is an activity that easily involves the whole family,” said Dana Bullen, general manager for Sunday River. “It gets people outdoors and involved in physical activity while encouraging them to work together.”
Currently played throughout the world by adventurists equipped with GPS devices, guests to Sunday River are invited to rent resort GPS units to use in their search to locate up to a dozen hidden geocache boxes with prizes.
Sunday River’s geocache points are hidden along the resort’s 12 mile network of designated hiking terrain spanning eight mountain peaks. To find their secret locations, guests can choose to hike to each point or utilize the Chondola to bring them closer to locations in higher elevation.
Geocache equipment is available to rent out of Sunday River Sports in the South Ridge Lodge and is $15 for full day use. Sunday River Sports is open Fridays, 10 – 4 p.m., Saturdays, 10 – 5 p.m., and Sundays, 10 – 4 p.m. starting June 25.
