This Jamboree will be the first at the new Summit site and is sure to be a great experience. Both Boy Scouts and (for the first time) Venturers can attend! (Boy Scouts must be 12 and First Class by July 15, 2013. Venturers must be valid registered members of a Crew of Sea Scout Ship). You can learn more at http://www.bsajamboree.com.

Caving 2012 – April 13-15

What: Crawling on your belly like a snake through a dark hole in the earth; working on scouting skills for those too young to crawl too far and those who want to show off their skills in front of the younger guys; did we say fishing? This is a private cave system in southern Kentucky.

Who: Scouts, Leaders, and Parents-those who want to crawl! We will also need older scouts and adults who will not be caving to help with the scout skills and fishing!

Friday, April 13, 2012 – we meet at the Church at 5PM; leave at 5:01PM
Sunday, April 15, 2012 – we return to the Church at 4PM

Bring: Scout essentials (see your handbook); other overnight gear (sleeping bag, pad, messkit, etc.); SEE SPECIAL CAVING GEAR LIST.

Cost: $35.00 – covers food and transportation and all activities.

UPDATE: Added the Caving 2012 special gear list.
