It was all so well done and we ALL learned so much and had a great time. The caverns were wonderful!"   Julie, Brownie Troop 5789, April 14, 2012, Potomac, MD
"We had an absolutely wonderful time this weekend. Thank you so much for your passion and energy... I never realized how interesting caves were until I met you. You made learning so much fun that we are looking forward to visiting more caves. Our guide, Alyssa, and our instructor, Jennifer, were both top notch-such great examples of strong, capable, smart female leaders for our girls. What a treasure you have. Thanks again for a memorable weekend."  Robin A., Girl Scout Troop 5462, Fairfax, VA
