We have brought Caving Tennessee back for another summer. Campers will head down to the TAG Region (Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia) for this week of fun underground. The TAG region is the premier US destination for caving. The region offers endless numbers of caving opportunities perfect for a group of Calleva campers. During the week we will visit dry, wet, horizontal, and vertical caves all within a short drive from our campsite. Campers will learn the basics of vertical caving with rappelling and ascending. Unlike many of the caves that campers experience in Adventure Camp, these caves are private, meaning we will have them to ourselves to explore. Come and experience the world underground with this week of ADVENTURE and FUN.
