Geocaching Challenges

What Is A Challenge Cache?
   A challenge cache requires that geocachers meet a geocaching-related qualification or series of tasks before the challenge cache can be logged.  

Please note: Beginning April 21, 2015, a one-year moratorium is in effect on all new "challenge cache" submissions. This includes cache submissions that contain optional challenges. It does not impact previously published challenge cache listings. -https://support.groundspeak.com/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=206

This challenge checker lists a lot, but not all, of the challenges -

The Pennsylvania Delorme Challenge - Geocaching

What Is a Delorme Challenge? In 2004, Haicoole unveiled the California DeLorme Challenge cache. This popular challenge cache has since been repeated in many other states. The DeLorme Atlas & Gazetteer is published for all 50 states. . The goal of this cache is simple: to find a cache on each and every page of the  State DeLorme Atlas & Gazetteer.  Once a cache is found from every page, you email the reviewer to get the coordinates for the actual Delorme Cache location.
