International Training Camp for Young Speleologists: Germany


Active member
The next International Training Camp for Young Speleologists will occur in the Schw?bische Alb (Swabian Jura), South Germany, on 1-15 August 2020.

Caves are geotopes and biotopes and therefore sensitive climate archives which are worth exploring. Research and protection of these climate archives and modern cave climates, which are indicators of climate changes, is an actual and important European concern. Speleologists can support the exploration and protection of these climate archives by international cooperation.

Good training is the best base for research and caving activities. Therefore, we offer different training courses and a wide supporting program covering all important caving themes. Due to small group sizes, the training will be very effective. An additional intention of the camp is to meet other young cavers. You can establish ties, talk about your interests, hobbies and culture, and perhaps meet them in their home area and visit karst areas and caves for future joint research.

The camp is intended for young people (recommended age of 16 years or older) who want to start with caving or who already have some experience and want to extend their skills. You must understand German or English language. For more information and register, visit
