  • experience caving and have first-hand experience of the benefits of caving as an activity for young people
  • be aware of range of ways that caving can be provided for Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts in South Wales and how the Caver Activity Badge may be obtained

All caving equipment will be supplied and joining instructions will be provided to all participants. There is no charge for this Caving Taster Day.
