At our National SCOUT Caving School you will learn skills of working in water, way-finding, rock-climbing and black-water rafting in the awe-inspiring setting of the Waitomo caves.
All learning at Caving School occurs in the natural environment: on water, and in trees and caves. Students enjoy navigating through passages branching off at crazy angles, hiking to cave entrances and abseiling 80 feet into a cave.
Next School: April School holidays 2018
Venue: Hamilton Tomo Group Lodge, Te Anga Road, Waitomo
