A find score is the total number of caches that a geocaching team has logged as a find. It is a statistic that geocachers often use to compare themselves with other geocachers.

Find scores vary based on the site. On Geocaching.com, each cache is counted as one find, regardless of difficulty rating. However, on Navicache.com, the find score is the sum of the difficulty ratings of all cache finds, so that a more difficult cache will be worth more than an easier one. Navicache.com also keeps a separate count of the number of caches found.

Each web site only lists counts for their site's cache listings. One attempt to unite find scores of different sites is maintained by Keenpeople.com, where a geocacher manually enters his or her total find score.
