The SCCi Now Owns Tumbling Rock Cave

We’re pleased to announce that cavers now own the classic and caver-favorite Tumbling Rock Cave! The SCCi started leasing the cave in January, 2008 and purchased the cave in July, 2011. Tumbling Rock Inc., an Alabama non-profit corporation, manages the cave. This very special acquisition is the culmination of more than four years of extensive efforts by SCCi member Jay Clark and others. The cave is open for visitation primarily on weekends, from Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon. Access at other times may be possible by special arrangement. Send an email to tumblingrock@scci.org if you have any questions about visiting the cave.

We have several special fundraising opportunities for everyone to help us pay off this fabulous cave. First, you can “buy a piece of the cave.” We also have a new, unique fundraising program. We’re going to build a small patio near the cave entrance, and you can purchase a brick for $100 engraved with your name, your Grotto’s name, your scouting troop’s name, or anything you want! This will be a wonderful way to permanently mark your support of the Tumbling Rock purchase. Look for additional details about these programs soon.

In addition, one of the best things you can do to help the SCCi pay off this cave and purchase more caves is to sign up as a Sustaining Member by giving a set amount each month. As little as $10 or $15 a month really helps us buy even more caves. Plus, all sustaining members get into the cave for free!
