And for us, a highlight will be to have the troop and crew visit REI at Settlers Ridge.
Caving has an important place in scouting and we have a responsibility to care for the environment of these fragile places. The BSA Field book has a great chapter on it (and it's free). Also at caves.org there is a great page on BSA and Caving. Linked there is the Guide to Safe Scouting and policies about caving that any leader should be familiar with. In particular all should know about the tragedy called white-nose syndrome and what the BSA's responsibility is to help not be part of the problem.
