Throughout August and September KYPcaches will be hidden in locations all across the Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

We are looking for intrepid explorers of all ages to discover them!

Medals plan AKYPcache treasure hunters aged 16 or under who discover 2 or more caches will receive a certificate.

Bronze medals will be awarded to those who discover between 10 and 19 caches.

Silver medals are awarded for between 20 and 29, and anyone who discovers all 30 caches will receive a coveted Gold medal.

Each cache contains a notebook for you to leave messages for other KYPcache treasure hunters.

From Friday 1 August, the OS Grid references and GPS co-ordinates of all 30 sites will be given, as well as a clue to help you find them.KYPcache box
