(leaving from the Des Moines Leadership Center)
Step back in time at one of Iowa’s most unique state parks, Maquoketa Caves! After we set up camp, we’ll go spelunking and hiking throughout the park. You’ll want to be sure to bring a headlamp or flashlight and wear old clothes and shoes because you’ll get dirty! You’ll also see the “Natural Bridge” which stands nearly 50 feet above Raccoon Creek, and the 17-ton “Balanced Rock”. Enjoy outdoor cooking, making s‘mores, and friendly company around the campfire that evening! A service project for the park will be incorporated into this event with details to follow closer to the event date. Spelunkers should bring personal camping gear such as a tent, sleeping bag, mess kit, flashlight, backpack, and water bottle. Food and equipment for activities will be provided. Transportation will be provided and we will leave from the Des Moines Leadership Center. Overnights are girls only - safety ratios will be met by staff.
