Scout Caving Group

The Scout Caving Group commenced in 1982 with a group of Scout Leaders who were concerned for the welfare and safety of members of the Scout Association undertaking activities in caving. The main purpose of SCG is to promote and conduct adventurous activities in an underground environment and to provide training for Scout Caving Leaders.

Scout Caving Group is open to all members of the Scout Association. Caving Leaders must be over 18 and have appropriate Scout Leadership training. Venturers can also be of assistance to the SCG and gain caving experience, which can eventually go towards becoming a Caving Leader.
