Hampshire Scout Caving Club

HSCC Home Page

Hampshire Scout Caving Club exists to give youth members of the Scout Association in Hampshire the opportunity to try caving. To that end we run a number of "Caving Days" each year. These are open to Scouts and Explorer Scouts, are based in Mendip, Somerset and cost £90 for a group of up to six participants. The dates for 2018 are Saturday 24th March, Sunday 25th March, Saturday 19th May, Sunday 20th May, Saturday 13th October & Sunday 14th October.

If you are unable to make the above dates, the caving club will, subject to leader availability, organise leaders for your own trip on a date of you choice. A day's trip in Mendip for a group of up to six will cost £90, other areas will cost more.

The fees paid for the above activity days include equipment hire, cave fees and cave leaders expenses. They do not include lunch or the cost of transporting the participants to and from the caves.

If you have your own cave leaders and just want to borrow kit, the hire charge is £3.50 per day for a set of helmet, lamp and belt. There is a further charge of £3.50 per day for oversuits.

If requested, leaders from the caving club will come to your section meeting to give a short presentation on caving.

For any of the above please contact the booking secretary using the form on the "contact" page.

If you are interested in caving and are at least 18 years of age, Hampshire Scout Caving Club periodically runs leader taster days. For details contact the chairman using the form on the "contact" page.

The provisional dates for 2018 are the weekend of the 27th January.
