Welcome! The MIT Caving Club is a group of students, alumni, and partners who all love the adventure of seeing things you only can if you're dozens of feet under the earth, up to your shins in mud, and shining a dim light into the darkness of a squeezy tunnel. We go on various trips throughout the year to caves in the northeastern United States.
