What we're about

Offering a congenial atmosphere for cave enthusiasts of all ages. Attended by members of both local cave clubs, the Windy City Grotto and Sub-Urban Chicago Grotto, which are official local posts of the National Speleological Society. (no affiliation required)

Experienced, retired, and not-yet-cavers are all welcome! Most of us do our caving outside of the city of Chicago- find out what it's like, who's going, and let's go caving!

Join us for a caving experience this fall. We have 2 trips coming up to Illinois Caverns in Waterloo. Sept. 24-25, or October 29-30. Both are suitable for either first time or experienced cavers. We will be tent camping at Freedom Lake Campground. You are also welcome to get a hotel room if you prefer. We will be playing some fun/spooky Halloween based games around the campfire. We hope to also visit another nearby cave on Sunday. Please remember that all first time cavers must complete a "Caving 101" briefing first. Event cost is $15 to cover camping fees and firewood.
