Caver Activity Badge

How to earn your badge

  1. Take part in at least four trips to at least two different cave systems. You must make each visit as a member of a properly led group.
  2. Keep a record of your trips and the routes you followed.
  3. Develop a good knowledge of the caving and cave conservation codes. Show your assessor that you’re aware of the environmental  issues around caving.

! Your leader will need to check the activity rules in chapter nine of Policy, Organisation and Rules and the Adventurous Activity Permit Scheme.



Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities. For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
