Letterboxing combines artistic ability with "treasure-hunts" in parks, forests, and cities around the world. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues. The prize: an image from a miniature piece of art known as a rubber stamp—usually a unique, hand-carved creation.
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

When I was a naturalist and before this was "cool" I used to slackline with my camps every summer. Below is a great article on how to do it safely even with the youngest Girl Scouts. They advocate for a 2 inch flat webbing on the bottom, but I have used any sturdy webbing, without too much give. It is a great experiment to to see what ropes work, add a second rope high for balance or even walk on two ropes. ~ Firebug
