CAM 2018 is only 459,456 seconds away! And it is 60 seconds closer every minute! :dance:

When CAM 2018 kicks off at 8am on Saturday, March 24th, the .gpx and other related files will become available for download here in the 2018 CAM Information Thread on the MGS forum. (If you haven't already subscribed to the thread, please do so in order to receive notification of updates.)

KICKOFF EVENTS
We are hosting six regional CAM Kickoff events on March 24th (West, West Central, Central, North, South, and East). The purpose of these events is to offer assistance with loading gpx files onto GPS devices and to provide an introduction to CAM for first-time CAM participants. So if you've always wanted to try CAM but aren't comfortable with the technical aspects of loading the waypoints onto your device, attend the event nearest you and we'll help you get started! These events are also a great way to share in the excitement of the Big Reveal in the company of your fellow geocachers. (Attending an event is not required in order to participate in CAM; all geocachers are welcome to attend regardless of whether you intend to participate in CAM.)

GPX FILE DISTRIBUTION LIST
In addition, you can have the files e-mailed directly to you when they go live at 8am on the 24th. To receive them, fill out this link to submit your email address and receive a confirmation email. Your address will be placed on a distribution list for a one-time message with the files in it. We will also include download links in case your e-mail provider blocks the attachments for some reason.

WILL-ATTEND
If you intend to participate in CAM this year, please post your will-attend for the CAM Picnic. More information can be found on the CAM Picnic cache page.

CAM 2018 FAQ

The following is a list of frequently asked questions about CAM. Most of these questions have been accumulated from previous FAQs posted to the forum with a couple new ones added this year. Be sure to subscribe to this thread to receive the most current information about CAM 2018 as we approach the kickoff day!


What is CAM?
CAM (Cache Across Maryland) is an annual event hosted by the Maryland Geocaching Society. 10 members are chosen by the MGS to place a total of 10 CAM caches in various locations all over Maryland. Your mission is to find all 10 of those caches and have a wonderful time travelling around this fine State. If you find all 10 and gather the special code from each one, the location of the annual CAM celebratory picnic will be revealed, and you’re invited to attend. This year there is an exception: 11 CAM caches have been hidden, however you will still only need to find 10 to qualify. It doesn't matter which one you skip, but be warned that those who find all 11 will boast about it. There may also be a very, very small reward for those who go to "11".

When is CAM?
It varies from year to year, but the hunt typically begins on a Saturday in mid-to-late-March, and the picnic is typically the 1st or 2nd Saturday in May. This year’s CAM begins on Saturday, March 24th, and the picnic will be on Saturday, May 5th.

Where is the picnic?
Wouldn't you like to know! You need to find at least 10 of the caches and get the information from each one. The week before the picnic, we will publish a special decoder which will reveal the location of the picnic when paired with the information you discovered in each CAM cache (and circled on your CAM 2018 passport, right? Passports will be handed out with the files and at kickoff events). The picnic is held in a different location each year, and finding out where is part of the fun!

Who can participate?
Any geocacher can participate, regardless of experience. You must have a valid account on geocaching.com, and your geocaching.com username will appear on your Certificate of Completion. If you’re not a member of the MGS that’s OK, but you’re encouraged to join.

Do I need to find at least 10 CAM Caches to attend the picnic?
Yes! The picnic is a special event for those that find at least 10 of the caches, and you need to visit each cache to get the information needed to find the picnic.

Boy, there is a lot of driving needed to get all the caches! Can I join a group and carpool?
Of course! Just seek out other participants and form a group. Feel free to post in the CAM forums to team-up and find fellow carpoolers.

What can I expect the caches to be like? How hard are they?
The CAM caches are usually rated no higher than 2.5 Difficulty and 2.5 Terrain. Size is at least a regular. This year there will be various cache types, including Traditionals, Multi-Caches, on-site Puzzle caches, and – for the second time in CAM history – a Wherigo!

I've never done a Wherigo. Is it difficult? How do I learn how?
Finding a Wherigo cache requires first loading a wherigo ‘cartridge’ into your device. Only a few Garmin GPSrs can play wherigo cartridges (Colorado, Oregon, Nuvi 500). Most people nowadays find Wherigos using their smart phones. There are apps available for Android (WhereYouGo) and iPhone (Wherigo). You can learn more about Wherigos and even test drive a few by visiting wherigo.com. We realize many people's devices aren't capable of playing Wherigos; this is the primary reason there are 11 CAM caches this year. If you are unable to do the CAM Wherigo, you can find the other 10 CAM caches and still qualify.

Will the Wherigo cartridge be provided in the CAM e-mail and forum download area on Saturday?
No. We thought about this, and it would be easy to do, but unfortunately Wherigos don't always work properly if not downloaded from wherigo.com. We will, however, provide a link to the CAM Wherigo's page to make it easier for you to download the cartridge. Additionally, the CAM bonus Wherigo is customized to the account of the downloader.

What happens to the CAM caches after CAM each year?
The CAM caches are often transferred to the hider of the cache or otherwise adopted out and maintained like any other cache. In some cases the hides are archived, for instance if hide permission is granted by the land manager specifically for CAM and only up until the date of the picnic.

Where is the cache information for each of the caches?
On the morning of opening day, the cache pages get published in the forums as .pdf files for viewing, and are also included in a special .gpx file you can load on your GPSr. They are NOT published on geocaching.com until after the picnic. The CAM caches will be published here on the MGS forums at 8.00am on March 24th. A word of warning: You MUST adhere to any restrictions on access times for the land the cache is placed on. Violating legal land access times will not be tolerated, is illegal, and puts future CAMs in jeopardy. MGS won’t bail you out of the hoosegow either. We try to put accurate hours on the cache listings, but it is your responsibility to comply with local laws and posted park hours.

If the CAM caches aren’t published on geocaching.com until after the CAM Picnic, what do I do about logging them in the meantime?
At the start of CAM, a topic will be opened here on the forums for each cache. You may log your experience in that topic and when the caches are published on geocaching.com after the picnic, you can cut and paste your logs. Of course, you can just keep your own notes somewhere until they are available for logging on geocaching.com.

I care what order my caches get logged on geocaching.com and I log using the real found date. If the CAM caches aren’t available for logging on geocaching.com until after the picnic, how can I keep them in order along with all my other finds during CAM?
The simple answer is that you can’t unless you wait till after CAM to log everything you found during CAM on geocaching.com. If you only worry about find milestone order, then you can use the milestone features on geocaching.com to keep milestones accurate in your account. You are strongly encouraged to backdate your logs on geocaching.com with the actual date during CAM that you found them.

I’ve got this really cool Travel Bug or other Trackable. Can I put it in a CAM Cache?
Please don’t. Since the caches aren’t published on geocaching.com during CAM, it isn’t possible to log them into or out of the cache, and that’s not fair to the owner of the trackable. So, please don’t place any in a CAM cache during CAM. If you find one, please take it with you and put it in a cache that’s listed on geocaching.com.

Is there any sort of reward for finishing?
Each person with a geocaching.com handle will receive a certificate for completing CAM. In addition, those geocachers who are able to attend the CAM picnic will receive a CAM geocoin trackable at geocaching.com.

If I cannot make the picnic, will I be able to get a certificate and a coin?
Any geocacher who does not attend the CAM picnic will still receive a certificate which can be picked up at a future event, but the geocacher will not earn a free geocoin.

Can I have someone else pick up my coin?
Sorry, you must be present to receive your coin.

Can I have someone buy a coin for me at the picnic?
Yes, once all coins have been handed out at the picnic, the remaining coins will be sold by the MGS officers. You can have someone buy a coin for you.

Each member of my family has their own geocaching.com handle, including our newborn. Will they each get a geocoin for completing CAM?
Every member of your family who has a geocaching.com handle and found at least 10 CAM caches will receive a CAM coin. Though we do not require it, we encourage families which earn several geocoins to make a donation to the MGS. Selling the remaining CAM geocoins is a way for the MGS to raise money to cover the cost of presenting CAM and other events through the year. Many MGS members with families give a donation at the CAM picnic to cover some of the cost of the geocoins their families earn. If you wish to give a donation, there will be a donation jar located near the sign-in table.

How will you know I’ve found all the caches and I’m finished?
Details on how to tell us you’ve finished can vary from year to year, but it generally involves sending an e-mail to a special CAM Completion e-mail address or submission of a form. It is VERY IMPORTANT to let us know you’ve finished so we can make the picnic as enjoyable as possible for everyone, and so we can have your Certificate of Completion ready for you. Stay tuned to this thread for more details on posting your CAM completion.

Is there anything else to do during CAM but find the caches?
There are often some other contests going on, such as the Best Photo contest, vote for your Favorite Hide, etc., and there are several competitions and awards at the picnic. Suggestions are always welcome!

What if I can’t find one of the caches, it's missing, or damaged?
You can contact any of the MGS Officers at any time to report any issue with a CAM hide during CAM. We’ll coordinate repair or replacement of a hide as quickly as possible so you can make another attempt, but you must find at least 10 of them to complete CAM. After the picnic, please contact the cache owner.

I’m really hungry after all that caching. What’s to eat at the picnic?
The picnic is a grand pot luck and barbeque. A few weeks before the picnic a forum topic will be started where you can tell us what you’re planning to bring. The 2018 CAM Picnic Food & Volunteer List is available now.

Who pays for all this?
You do, through your generous donation of time, goods, or money to the MGS. You can offer monetary support in various ways, including the purchase of MGS and CAM merchandise from the RH Promos, direct donations, purchase of an MGS Maryland License Plate, donations of items for MGS Silent Auctions, and participating in other fundraising activities throughout the year. Everything goes back to the community in accordance with our by-laws.

I usually get a hotel on the Friday before the start of CAM in (Ocean City, Elkton, St Mary’s County, Grantsville, etc). Can you let me know if I shouldn’t get a hotel room in one of those locations because there is not a CAM cache near there?
Part of the excitement of CAM is the secrecy of where the CAM locations are, so we will not make a statement, “Don’t get a hotel in Southern Maryland, because we didn’t put any caches there this year.” The CAM Teaser Map has already published; hopefully this will give you a fair sense of where you might need to travel and help you adjust your travel plans.

I’m new to geocaching and i don’t understand how to load .gpx files onto my GPSr. Is there any way i can get help with this?
Yes, we are hosting six kickoff events to help introduce new cachers to CAM and to assist with loading cache files onto their devices. The events will take place on Saturday, March 24th from 7.30–8.30am at the following locations:

GC7JGX7 - West: Cumberland hosted by jercade
GC7JGXC - West Central: Hagerstown hosted by tazscouter
GC7JGX9 - North: Maryland House hosted by CodyHollowFarm
GC7JGXE - Central: Frederick hosted by hunterKat
GC7JGXN - South: Bowie hosted by littleblkdog
GC7JGXJ - East: Salisbury hosted by Pyro1970 and pegasusmoon

How can i stay up-to-date with CAM announcements?
If you haven’t already, you should subscribe to the 2018 CAM Information Page on the forums. Scroll to the top of the CAM Info Page and click the ‘Subscribe topic’ link (see below). If you need help, contact one of the MGS officers.

DO NOT ENTER AFTER HOURS, NO MATTER HOW TEMPTING


The Maryland Geocaching Society welcomes you to

Image


Eleven geocaches have been placed throughout the state of Maryland in locations specifically chosen to showcase its diverse beauty. From the mountains of Western Maryland to the wetlands of the Eastern Shore, CAM 2018 will demonstrate that Maryland truly is ‘America in Miniature’.



Below you will find all the information needed to complete CAM. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

In the download locations, you will find:
  • The .gpx file containing all 11 CAM caches
  • The .gpx file containing the 16 CAM bonus caches.
  • A list of the CAM bonus caches
  • The CAM Passport
  • The Overview Map of all 11 CAM caches
  • A zip archive containing all of the above, plus a .pdf of all 11 cache pages

While there are 11 CAM caches this year, you only need to find 10 of them to qualify for a Certificate of Completion. Those who find at least 10 CAM caches and attend the CAM picnic on May 5th will also be awarded a CAM 2018 geocoin.


BE SURE TO FIND THE CODE IN EACH CAM CACHE! You can keep track of the codes on your CAM Passport, in a notebook, etc. THIS CODE IS VERY IMPORTANT!! Sometime during the last week of April, a decoder will post here in this forum thread. All ten codes you collect will be needed to determine the coordinates for the event. You may get special bragging rights by possessing all 11 codes!

CAM caches will not be published until the day of the event, Saturday, May 5th, so you CANNOT log them FOUND until then (even if you find fewer than 10, you can still log the ones you actually found). You may use the appropriate thread in the CAM forums as storage for your temporary logs. When the caches are officially published on geocaching.com, you can simply copy/paste your logs from the forums to the cache pages. NO SPOILERS PLEASE. :shame: There will also be a photo gallery set up on the MGS website for you to upload photos.

Speaking of photos, this year we will be doing another CAM PHOTO CONTEST, with the winners to be judged at the event. We also plan to have a vote for ‘Favorite CAM cache’ so keep that in mind when you are seeking them. We tried to keep everything uniform and bring you to each area, so rather than doing ‘scenic’ or ‘creative’, we’ll just lump it into one favorite, which can be for any reason!

There are several bonus caches being released this morning in conjunction with CAM. Here is a bookmark list: CAM 2018 Bonus List. If these caches have not already been published this morning, they will be published shortly. Make sure these caches are loaded into your GPSr.

Also, since the caches will not be listed until the event, DO NOT LEAVE TRACKABLES in the caches. If you want to use your own TB/geocoin for mileage that’s fine (you'll need to log it after May 5th), but with no way to keep track of TBs, the CAM caches aren’t a good place to drop them until the caches are actually published.

Keep an eye on this thread. We will post a link to submit your CAM completion information in the next few days. Once complete with CAM you can fill in this form. This information will be used to create the CAM Certificates.

The picnic event will be Saturday, May 5th from 10am–4pm. The picnic will be potluck, please bring a dish to share. For those that have not attended an MGS event, there is always plenty of food so do not feel the need to feed a small army. At some point when it looks like you’re finished with CAM, please post a note with what you intend to bring so we don’t end up with too many of the same items.

PLEASE OBEY ALL PARK HOURS! The caches are NOT night accessible. The CAM organizers realize this is a large undertaking, but please budget your time wisely so you’re not tempted to go in after dark. You risk being prosecuted or, at the very least, having your car locked in after hours. Some of the parks open at a specific time and not at sunrise. Please respect those hours.

We are most fortunate to have been welcomed back to another National Park location this year. It would be a shame if our relationship with National, State, and County parks were jeopardized by geocachers disobeying park rules and regulations. Please think seriously about this when you visit the parks. And if you see a park ranger, be sure to express your thanks and appreciation!

Good luck, have fun, be safe, and enjoy the scenery of our beautiful state. We hope to see you all on May 5th!

The final of the CAM 2018: Eastport cache has been moved slightly to accommodate an event on site. It is still within 10-15 feet. Look for a tree. As soon as the event is over, we will place it back in the location as described in the Wherigo cartridge.

We have had some reports of protests happening at the statehouse near CAM 2018: Eastport in Annapolis. There are also significant rallies in downtown Washington, DC that may cause traffic to overflow on the roads around CAM 2018: Glen Echo Park. You may want to consider these locations on another day if you are headed there now.

It appears that the original container for CAM 2018: Deal Island went missing this weekend. An alert cacher contacted MGS (Thanks WVKiwi, AlwaysLost00 & AL's Guide!) and we coordinated a temporary replacement with the code at the same location. We expect a full size replacement to be placed on Tuesday. If you have any questions or issues, please contact the President or Vice President.

CAM 2018 Ocean City was mugged recently but it has now been replaced. There is a temporary cache with the code on the original lid at GZ so it is available for finding. We hope to restore it to its original glory in the next couple of days.

Announcing the much anticipated CAM 2018 Decoder:

   CAM 2018 DECODER

Hopefully you remembered to make a note of all the attributes you found in the CAM caches. :pray: Simply locate and click on those same eleven (or ten) attributes in the decoder, and it will reveal the corrected coordinates to the picnic. It will also provide you with parking coordinates and other information you will need. Please remember this is NOT public information!

A new feature of the CAM decoder has been added to allow you to save a custom and personalized virtual souvenir of CAM 2018. When you are completing the decoder you will be shown a button to dowload this virtual souvenir so that you can add it to your geocaching.com profile if you want to show off your geocaching prowess.

A Certitude checker has been added to the CAM Picnic event cache page to verify your coordinates are correct. Remember, don't share them! :shhh:

Have fun!
