Welcome to GeoWoodstock XIII
The concept of GeoWoodstock is the brainchild of JoGPS and has grown each year into what is today considered the annual convention for the international geocaching community. You'll not only meet cachers from all over the United States and the world but you can learn about the latest & greatest in geocaching tools and technology, meet and talk to experts in seminars and training sessions, and buy or sell geocaching and other interesting products. There are of course geocaches to be found, food to be eaten, games to be played, and other interesting sights and sounds.
This is a very laid back event. It all began with the 1st annual GeoWoodstock on June 21st, 2003 in Louisville, Kentucky and has grown into a Mega event. If you have never attended a GeoWoodstock, make plans to attend now and see what it's all about! If you have attended before, well, you know the feeling and we'll see you in May 2015!
Welcome to Washington County Maryland and the Washington County Agricultural Education Center in Boonsboro.
We invite you to experience GeoWoodstock and all that our state and county have to offer!
Maryland has been called "America in Miniature" because so much diversity is packed into its 10,460 square miles of land and water. From our beautiful beaches and coastal plains, to the hills and valleys of the Blue Ridge, to the high Appalachian Plateau, you'll find a bit of everything nature has to offer.
Washington County is full of rich history and the area is a gateway to many colonial and Civil War heritage sites. South Mountain State Battlefield, Antietam National Battlefield, Harper's Ferry National Historic Park, Washington Monument State Park, and The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park are just a few of the many treasures to experience while in the area. The county is located in the Appalachian Mountains and the Appalachian Trail traverses the heart of the county. Nearby historic Boonesboro and Hagerstown are just a few minutes away, and both Baltimore and Washington D.C. are just an hour and a half drive. With one foot in the north, and one foot in the south, the story of the Civil War, its causes, battles, heroes and villains...its very meaning can be told nowhere better than in this part of Maryland.
We have many fun activities and events planned, and details will be posted here as the event date approaches. We'll also fill you in on lodging and camping details, and lots of information to help you make the most out of your visit and the event!
