Scout Cave Leader Training


I have been an active caver for many a year and have recently become an assistant Scout Leader in West Yorkshire.

I have asked the activities commissioner if there is a Scout Caving team here and apparently there is not.

I would like to do the relevant training and have seen on here that training has been offered before. I understand what is needed from the activities website but not sure how to action it. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Good for you for taking on this voluntrary role. (I was in the scouts as a youngster and got a lot from it, thanks to people like you.)

There is a pretty strong association between scouting and caving in the Dales, with a numkber of associations. A forum user who lives in the south of England is a co-ordinator; he'll see this no doubt and hopefully respond.

We recently arranged donations to two of the scout caving associations round here from a will legacy; if you don't get a better response send me a PM with your email address and I'll see if I can get their folk to contact you.

I’m with @PaulW, and he’s not able to access his account at the moment. @beardedboy I’m going to PM you his email to reach out to him and he’ll get back to you 👍🏼

Another option if you have any questions about anything youth wise, scouts, schools, clubs or other is to reach out to the BCA youth and development officer at
