Affiliated with www.geocaching.com, Geomate, Jr. is the pre-programmed, pint-sized version of a GPS reciever made specifically for geocaching. Programmed with 250,000 pre-loaded geocaches, it's ready to rock and roll when you are. According to the website, at 250,000 geocaches, you could do one a day for 164 years!
Also, they're pretty easy to come by at Target, Amazon.com, Rei, and more. For a mere $70, they're decently affordable on one level, but definitely a high-tech price tag for the 4-10 year old set. Given that,it might be the kind of thing where your youngster saves up for awhile in his/her piggy bank, or it becomes a special bday/holiday gift. But, then again, it could be way cheaper than a reservation at next summer's summer camp.
