International Training Camp for Young Speleologists
on the Swabian Alb

Tent camp at the caving club building in Blaubeuren - Seissen

Caves are geotopes and biotopes therefore sensitive climate archives which are worth to explore.
Research and protection of this climate archives and the actual cave climate, which is an indicator of climate changes, is an actual and important European concern.
Speleologists can support the exploration and protection of these climate archives by international cooperation.
A good training is the best base for research and caving activities.
Therefore we offer different training courses and a wide supporting program covering all important caving themes. Due to small groups the training will be very effective. An additional intention of the camp is to meet other young cavers. You can establish ties, talk about your and their interests, hobbies and culture and perhaps meet them in their home area and visit karst areas and caves for future joint research.
The camp is intended for young people who want to start with caving or who already have some experience and want to extend their skills.
You should understand German or English language.
