Saturday 30th June 2018 and Sunday 1st July 2018


To all Cub Leaders

Central Yorkshire Caving Team will be running caving sessions for groups of 6 Cubs and 2 parents throughout the day on Saturday, starting at 9.30am with the last session starting at 3.00pm.  On Sunday, the first session will start at 10.00am and the last session will start at 1.30pm.

We appreciate it may not be possible for Leaders to accompany their Cubs to different caving sessions.  Therefore, we will provide enough trained Leaders and Helpers (both male and female), so that Parents or Helpers, who do not wish to cave, may be used for transport. Those who do wish to cave however will be more than welcome.  Please book along with your Cubs so we can provide the necessary safety equipment (this will not reduce the number of cubs caving). 

Caving is great fun but it is very dark so we provide each person with a light.  It is cool underground and a bit wet, so we provide over suits.  Cave temperature varies little, it remains constantly cool, water in the caves used is rarely above knee deep.  Some people may think they are claustrophobic, we find you only think you are, once you are inside with all your friends most are too interested and excited to be frightened.  No one will be forced to go where they are frightened, there are alternative routes or we will turn round and go back.

You will need to bring with you.


Packed lunch and hot drink (you will be hungry)


A complete change of clothes including underclothes (youwill get wet) no jeans underground




Wellington boots are best or stout boots no trainers (also change of footwear)


£10.00 to cover costs + transport costs (see your Cub Leader) £5.00 per Adult
