Thu May 11 2000 - 11:52:07 CDT
we are exploring a possible high adventure trip for our Varsity age Scouts
(14-15 yrs)- would involve travel, but stop overs would be at different
caves that the Scouts explore. <snip>
1. what are the restrictions on cave exploring for Varsity Scout
Team (14-15 yr old Scouts)?
Guide to Safe Scouting: p 28
"(bold on) 1. Cave exploring, other than simple novice activities, should be
limited to Scouts and Venturers 14 yrs of age or older.
(bold off) 2. Group leaders qualify thru training and experience in cave
exploring and through knowing established practices of safety, conservation,
and cave courtesy.
3. Leader and group must understand and agree to follow the basic practices
and policies of caving approved by the National Speleological Society and the
references: Venture activity pamphlet Caving, No. 33446A, and Ranger
guidebook, no. 3128."
Hope that's a start for you!
