Top 10 Best Geocache Travel Bugs for Kids

O.k, o.k, so we may be a little biased about our choices for the Top 10 Best Geocache Travel Bugs, considering here at The Kids Campfire Blog we’re close personal friends with all the Andy Camper travel bug gang. But seriously, they’re all really great and some of them are in your area!

What’s a travel bug, you ask? If you aren’t quite sure what a travel bug is, we’d highly recommend reading one of our most popular posts: Discover Geocaching Fun for Kids! In the article you’ll learn everything you’ll need to know about Geocaching.

Here’s our Top 10 list of the Best Geocache Travel Bugs and a little information on each:

#10: Charlotte the Penguin – She’s spent her whole life swimming in the frigid waters of Antarctica and needs a break! According to her bio, she’d love to visit more islands like Hawaii, Vancouver Island, Îles-de-la-Madeleine or even Cozumel. She was last spotted in Indiana, USA – and you can track her whereabouts by click on her tracking number TB27DRW.

#9: Maggie the Bighorn Sheep – She’s a feisty one, so be sure not to call her a mountain goat! According to Maggie’s bio, she’d absolutely love to visit her sister in Lake Louise, Canada. This travel bug is a hot find because no one has found Maggie yet! She’s in Ontario, Canada right now, but is packed and ready for adventure. Find out where she is by following her tracking number TB27DRR.

#8: Alligator Will – His bite is as gentle as a dove (but don’t tell him we told you). Although you’ll rarely see an alligator roaming the East Coast of Canada, that’s exactly where Will wants to go. Alligator Will is looking to travel to Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. Check out where he is now by following his tracking number TB21G2A.

#7: Francois the Frog – This sassy little frog is full of fun stories and great information about amphibians! This prince of all frogs is on the search for his princess and could really use your help, because HE’S GONE MISSING! He was last spotted in Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany… and then mysteriously disappeared. Only the intermediate geocachers should attempt to find him by following his tracking number TB27DRP.

#6: Jake the Porcupine – Watch your fingers when you meet Jake, his quills may poke you! But don’t let his appearance scare you off, he’s a really nice guy. You’ll rarely find a porcupine in a rainforest, but that’s exactly where Jake wants to go! He was last spotted in Virginia, USA. You can help get him to the rainforest by following his tracking number TB27DTC.

#5: Rabbit Kate – She’s fast as a rabbit!…probably because that’s exactly what she is. Right now Kate is looking for a chance to make her way through national and state capitals across North America and around the world. Kate was last seen in Quebec, Canada. She loves to travel, so try and track her down by following her tracking number (TB21G2G) and help her see the world!

#4: Airedale Terrier Bess – If you’re looking for fun, then you and Bess can easily sniff out adventure together! If you know Andy Camper, then you’ll know that this is Andy’s most trusted companion. Unfortunately, she’s lost and needs to get back to Andy at the Juniper Lodge in Ontario, Canada. Learn her whole story by following her tracking number TB21G2K.

#3: Davin the Turtle – Poor Davin is a slow-moving turtle and could really use the help of a fast-moving geocacher! He’s got “travel” oozing through his shell and would really like to see more of the world. He was last spotted in Alberta, Canada and is frequently on the move. Be sure to begin your search for Davin by following his tracking number TB27DTF.

#2: Logan the Polar Bear – Originally born and raised in Churchill, Canada, Logan has since gone missing! I’m sure a keen geocacher will be able to help get Logan back to his home. Although, I’m sure he’d appreciate a quick vacation in Hawaii to warm up before you send him home. He was last seen in Maine, USA and you can follow his tracking number at TB21G1V.

#1: Bruce the Moose – He’s one of the most popular travel bugs on the planet! Bruce has got a great sense of humour, so when you meet him be sure to take a picture of the two of you doing something extra funny. He was spotted in Texas, USA. Be one of the lucky few who get to meet Bruce by following his tracking number TB27DRZ.
