Our council sponsored a "Caveoree" open to all scouts. We toured 2
caves. One commercial and one wild. No patches were provided, instead
the camp fee went for caving helments. We were led into the wild cave by
a local grotto member. I think safety is the key issue. In this case
the situation was well under control. Everyone had a blast. On a side
note, most camporee fees cover event insurance which is purchased by the
council above and beyond the normal insurance.
