Who can be a Member
Our membership includes people from all walks of life and ranges from experts who been caving for over 20 years to novice beginners. Our group activities range from hard-core exploration to beginner to armchair caving to family outings. We also do kid friendly caving because we love introducing young people to caving and don’t forget to bring your dogs to our spring and fall camping/caving trips, we love dogs!
You just need to have an interest in caving to join.
You do not have to live in Delaware to be a member of our caving club. We have members from all across the country so don’t let that stop you from joining.
Types of Membership
There are basically two types of membership; Individual and Family. Individual members must be at least 18 years old. For Family membership, only the head of household needs to be 18 years old to pay dues. All other members of the family can then become members at no additional cost. We do ask that all family members (except spouses), upon reaching 18, join the club as an Individual member.
Benefits of Membership
As a member of CCCC, you’ll receive e-mail updates on the latest happenings with the club. You can also attend our fun monthly meetings full of drinks, food and lots of cave talk. We also hold an annual Holiday Party with an auction where you may be able to pick up caving equipment cheap. And the best benefit (I think) of membership is our Spring and Fall trips to cave country (usually West Virginia or Virginia, but not always) where you’ll get to go caving with a fun group of people who’ll show you where some awesome caves are. I guarantee you’ll have the best time ever!
We also publish a bi-yearly newsletter with upcoming events, cave news, photos and stories from our previous and upcoming events. This is delivered by email.
There is also a private Facebook group where we talk about caving, share photos and stories of our latest caving trips. You can ask questions, post your own pictures and find out about other fun activities the club is doing. The newsletter will be achieved here (under files) just in case you miss it in your inbox. We’ll send you a request to join the private FB group once you have paid your memberships fee.

The only requirement is an interest in exploring the underground world in a safe and responsible manner.
