Sometimes Caving Is Just Fun

It’s all fun and games till, well, till we’re done having fun and games.  And sometimes caving can be just fun and games.

The Philadelphia Grotto (www.phillygrotto.org) is a chapter of the National Speleological Society (www.caves.org). Dragon Breath Grotto (www.dragonbreathgrotto.org) is a caving program for Scouts that the Philadelphia Grotto passionately supports.


As often as possible, both organizations get together for caving and camaraderie. It’s a great time for the experienced cavers to spend some time with the youth sharing their love of caves. It’s a chance for the youth to give the adults a glimpse of the future of caving, and the outdoors in general, and show it is in good hands.

If you or your grotto would like to start a caving program in your local Scouting or other youth organization community, please feel free to let me know at allenmaddox@youcave.org.
