Caving With Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania Council 11-18-18

Yes, they were at it again. This time there were two new Troops to introduce to caving. Eastern PA Council set this one up at the same time as the one in October. This trip originally had sixteen people, but one Troop backed out at the last minute. It’s a shame because they missed a very good time with these girls. Maybe they’ll come out again when they can. We have been having a tremendous amount of rain and unprecedented snowfall for this time of year. As a result the cave actually had a good bit of water in it.

I like to use this cave for beginner trips because it is stable. But I’ve never seen this much water in this cave. Parts that usually have a little sticky mud had water over the top of my thigh.

Cave Exploring With Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania Council 10-2018

Last year the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania must have had a great time. They asked to go caving again. This time there were all new people on the trip. 

There were 16 of them in all. 12 youth and 3 adults from 2 different Girl Scout Troops, and 1 from the GS of Eastern PA Council. These girls did really good. But what would you expect from Girl Scouts. They eagerly took on every challenge. 

We didn't get to see the whole cave. But they are anxious to come back and try some more. I really hope they do. I'd like to see what other challenges they conquer.
