Ever been in a cave? Try spelunking (cave exploring) with your kids and discover incredible, hidden places, formed by nature. Caving basics for new explorers.

Why Go Spelunking?

There’s a reason that caves are a common setting in literature, TV, movies, mythology and even non-fiction stories: Caves are cool, dark and mysterious! These incredible hidden places, formed by nature, just beg to be explored by kids and grownups alike.

You probably won’t find a dragon or pirate’s treasure or even a hibernating bear on your spelunking adventure, but you and your family will see and experience wondrous things that stimulate kids’ imaginations and curiosity about the natural world.

When you explore a cave as a family, you’ll have both an exciting outdoor adventure and a fun learning experience that everyone will remember for a long time.
