This year, we will be returning to Laurel Caverns for caving!

We will stop for dinner on the way to the campsite, so please bring some cash with you, but also consider bringing a small snack, as it is a long drive. To go on the trip, you must be at least 12 years old, unless we can get four adults. If you want to go but are not 12 years old, sign up anyway and I will talk to you at the next troop meeting. If we have 4 adults attending, we can split up into two groups (12+ and 9+). It will cost $45 per person to attend the campout, to cover the cost of food, campground, and the caving. If you do not have ankle-high boots, long sleeves, long pants, two sources of light, and the completed permission form, you will be sent home when you arrive at RCMS (see below).
