Welcome to the SEMAG 2024 Summer Celebration information page

SEMAG 100 last June was a lot of work, but so rewarding to see all of that hard work pay off. As soon as the event ended, several people had the same question: can we do it again? Let's give it a try!

Join us for the second annual SEMAG summer celebration event, born from the success of SEMAG 100! This time we will be gathering at Attleboro's Highland Park, a former golf course donated to the city for conservation purposes and an ideal venue for the event.

If you didn't know, SEMAG stands for South Eastern Massachusetts Association of Geocachers. We have had a monthly event in the SE Massachusetts/Rhode Island area for more than 100 months in a row, dating back to March of 2015. SEMAG 100 in June of 2023 was our 100th straight monthly meeting, hence why we had such a big celebration. People enjoyed that celebration so much that we wanted to try for a SEMAG "Summer Celebration" in 2024 as well!

This event will begin at 2 P.M. and go until 7 P.M. The popular gadget cache and reviewer panels will be returning. Look for new caches in the area as well as adventure labs. Like last year, a special large log book will be available for signing. Check the official cache page for the schedule of events.

The SEMAG 2024 Summer Celebration Kickoff Event will take place in the morning from 9-9:30. Like last year's kickoff, this event will include information to lead in to a geocaching-themed game for anyone that wants to take part in it. It'll be a bit different from the BINGeO game from last year, but shoul>d still be fun! Please note that participation in this is not required for attendance at the main SEMAG 2024 event.

Handicap parking is also available in the lot on Rathbun Willard Dr. but will require crossing a grass path to get to the event.

The walking paths are flat, but not all are paved.
