Explorer Caving Weekend
November 29 @ 8:00 pm - December 1 @ 8:00 pm£100
NEW Explorer Caving Badge Weekend:29th Nov – 1st Dec. The Christian Adventure centre, Viney Hill in the Forest of Dean. £100 A full weekend with indoor accommodation, fully catered and with all equipment provided. This builds on the Caver Badge weekend earlier this year and results in the completion of the Explorer Caving Activity Badge. Caving will be done in the Mendips and will include vertical pitches. To be accepted you MUST be an Explorer Scout at the time of the event and have done the mandatory prerequisite 4 underground trips as per the badge specification. (Those who attended our January Caver Badge weekend meet this requirement). There are strict number quotas for this course which will be split into two groups. If we don’t reach the required number to run the second group this may be converted to a Scout Section Caver Badge opportunity staying in the Wye Valley area.
Applications: For the Explorer Caving badge, where you meet the prerequisites apply in the normal way with entry fee and evidence of meeting the prerequisites.
For those not meeting the prerequisites if you want to be held on a waiting list in case we run the Scout Section Caver Badge (which also works as the prerequisite introduction to the Explorer Caving Badge) please send an expression of interest (no fee at this point) and we will contact you if we proceed with the second event.
