A December 5th adventure! Troop 216 has enjoyed wild caving as a great
winter time activity considering the cave is always a steady temperature of
52 degrees. This is an exciting, unique experience of underground activity
and one enjoyed by both Scouts and adults.
Marengo Cave Indiana is about a 3 1/2 hour drive and in the Eastern time
zone, an hour ahead. Scouts will camp overnight inside a large wide-open
room of the cave which allows for safe distancing. Masks are required
during the drive and inside the cave or any buildings.
Please note clothing and supplies listed on the permission form as cavers
will get wet and muddy during the afternoon and need to change into warm
dry clothes and shoes for the evening.
The cave requires a signed waiver for all participants, youth or adult,
which you can find attached.
Waiver and permission forms will need to be turned in before or at the
meeting on November 30.
*We will need a count prior to that week however, so please determine with
your Scout by the November 23rd meeting if they/you will be attending*. To
be included in the count, please let Ms Gill or Bishopp know at the
meeting, or email or text Ms Gill by 8:30 pm November 23.
Please contact Diane Gill at email@example.com or 618 616 6774 to get
on the list, or if any questions or concerns.
