Cave and Wave

Three Other Things to Pack
  • Grungy clothes for the  cave (i.e. long pants, warm jacket or fleece)
  • Flashlight
  • Head lamp- while in the cave you will want two sources of light, but only one that you carry in your hand.  If you do not have a head lamp camp will provide one. 
We will ride in a chartered school bus to get to Ledge View Nature Center near Chilton, WI. 

Caving Information
At Ledge View Nature Center you will explore limestone caves and caverns formed over 100,000 years ago. Ledge View also offers hiking trails, an environmental education center, and a 60-foot observation tower.
You will get dirty crawling and squirming through the cool, damp caves, You will most likely get wet from dripping cave ceilings or cave floor puddles. Wear grungy clothes and shoes/boots (jeans and sweatshirt due to the cold temperatures of the cave) that you do not mind getting dirty. In the summer the cave temperatures are 42-56 degrees Fahrenheit.
