Troop 67 has run the canoe races for several years. This event annually draws hundreds of people.
We need both scout and adult volunteers to successfully run this event.
If you can come and plan to stay all day, that would be great but anytime you can offer is appreciated.
There is lots to do including set up, helping to participants in and out the canoes, helping to guide the canoes during the race, getting people fitted with life jackets, recording winers, annoucing the races and clean up.
This is a very fun day for the boys. There will be breaks offered to enjoy other activities at the event and eat great food.
Come on out and support Troop 67.
Volunteer time count towards service hours for rank advancement!
Laurel Caverns is a large natural cave located 50 miles south of Pittsburgh. Most of the passage ceilings in its three mile labyrinth are between ten and twenty feet high (many as high as 50 feet) with an average width of over twelve feet. This makes it the largest cave in Pennsylvania. The cave itself is situated beneath a 435 acre privately owned geological preserve. Because this property is at the top of Chestnut Ridge, all of the water that enters the cave is pristine.
Caving is the more contemporary term for what is popularly called spelunking. It refers to going into a cave completely in its natural state. Due to its conservation mission, Laurel Caverns is the only developed cave in the world having its largest rooms and passages completely in their original state.
Upper Caving begins at the cave entrance in the Visitors’ Center and goes no further than those passages within a half-mile radius of that entrance. Participants must be at least 9 years of age. This activity allows you to see some of the largest rooms in Laurel Caverns as well as some of the crawl passages off the lighted area. Because it is less rigorous than Lower Caving, even many adults prefer it to Lower Caving. On this exploring adventure there is much climbing up and over rocks. Injuries can occur from this kind of climbing and participants must respect the points made by the release form.
Upper caving sign up below. Parents - please read the Upper Caving release form below before registering your child.
Lower Caving also begins at the cave entrance in the Visitors’ Center but takes you almost to the bottom of the mountain, 45 stories down from that entrance. Participants must be at least 12 years of age. The trip permits the visitor to see over two miles of cave covering both the undeveloped cave and the lighted portion. The trip takes about three hours. Most of the passages are between ten and forty feet high. It is suggested that children under twelve years of age take the Traditional Guided Tour or the Upper Caving Tour and strongly suggested that the physically challenged carefully consider the strenuous nature of a three hour caving trip 45 stories down in elevation. On this exploring adventure there is much climbing up and over rocks. Injuries can occur from this kind of climbing and participants must respect the points made by the release form.
Lower caving sign up below. Parents - please read the Lower Caving release form below before registering your child.
Both trips also require a signed release form which, for anyone under 18 years of age, must also be signed by a parent or legal guardian. These forms must be read carefully for they will tell you three things.
Any individual under the age of 18 arriving without a parentally signed release form or not properly prepared will not be admitted to a caving activity. Trip sponsors and leaders may not sign for anyone as a proxy for the parent.
Both trips require participants to bring at least two good sources of light. Also, each must wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, and shoes with good tread and ankle support. Laurel Caverns will supply the hard hats. Each participant must also fill out and sign a release form. Links to the forms can be found below. The cave temperature is 52 degrees. Bring a change of clothing; this is a real caving trip and participants will get the wet sands of the cave on their clothing.
Please print and return the appropiate release form to Deb Davidson by June 12th.
