Want to go caving but don't know where to start? Join a local grotto! The Northern New Jersey Grotto holds a meeting on the second Tuesday of every month. If you're interested in caving, come out to one of our meetings and talk with some experienced enthusiasts!

To find specific dates and locations for our meetings, join our active facebook group:

We would like to encourage you to join our grotto and become a member of the caving community!

Annual dues are $20 for individuals or families.
NNJG dues are free for the first year if the new member also joins the NSS that year.
To join: dowload, fill-out and mail the Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)

Newcomers should be in good physical condition-it helps to have some experience with other outdoor sports such as hiking, camping, climbing or skiing, but it's not absolutely necessary. Helmets and lights for first-time cavers can be borrowed from the Grotto Quartermaster. Individual members must be over 18 years of age, although families are welcome to join. We encourage people to come to one of our meetings which are held the second Tuesday of the month.
