I am a youth leader in Virginia. I have been caving since I was 9 years old when a nice teacher took our class. The experience so moved me, that I use caving as a team building experience for the teenagers that I have been trying to inspire for the past 20 years. The kids have been able to overcome their fears, work together, and forge memories that will last a lifetime. Many of the kids that have come through my youth group now have kids of their own but still talk of the great impact caving had on their lives!

Enjoy the subterranean journeys and be safe!
