Who can go?

All participants must be members of the Scout Association and be Leaders, Fellowship, Rovers, Venturers and Scouts. Joeys & Cubs - you'll have to wait!

Caving Leaders

...are Scouters, from all Sections. Some are primarily Activity Leaders, others are active Section Leaders who assist at least three times per year.Caving Image

Rovers and Venturers can also train to be Cavers.


Firstly, come on a weekend or a day trip with us to see how we operate with groups underground. We run specialised training courses during the year - click on the TRAINING tab to the right to find out more.

Award Schemes

Caving Activities can be enjoyed purely for fun and interest, or used to achieve various awards or badges such as the Scout Caving Badge, Venturer Endeavour Award, Venturer Outdoors 1 & 2 Awards, Baden-Powell Award or any of The Duke of Edinburgh's Awards.

Why do it?

Caving is FUN, different, safe, very interesting and something your mates haven’t done!
