Reporting from Congress!


Active member
Earlier in the year the BCA was able to provide two university groups with a grant to attend the International Congress of Speleology in France.

In the latest post on the BCA website, the clubs share their account of the event. This positive cross-border relationship building is something I can massively get on board with both personally and in my role with the BCA, and if anyone has any ideas which they feel would benefit please drop me a message on here or in an email to my BCA email youth@british-caving.org.uk and I'll look to get back to you as soon as possible.
