Creation Caving Adventure with Buddy Davis

September 12, 2015

Grab a flashlight, lace up your hiking boots, and come along with Buddy Davis on an adventure-packed day of spelunking! Buddy will lead you on an exciting journey through the breathtaking Cumberland Caverns, located in McMinnville, Tennessee. Buddy was on site at Cumberland Caverns for the filming of his video in the Amazing Adventures series: Extreme Caving! This is your chance for an up-close look, and you're sure to discover plenty of behind-the-scenes information about the making of the video, not to mention great biblical teaching about cave formation.

In addition to exploring the caves, the day's activities will include dinner in the cave, a showing of Extreme Caving, a concert by Buddy, and an option to camp overnight in the cave!

This is an action-packed event that you won't want to miss.

Walking Tour

Come see what waits beneath the surface in Tennessee! This guided tour includes historic saltpeter artifacts, gleaming pools, a waterfall, and the acclaimed God of the Mountain sound and light pageant.

The walking tour is a 1.5-mile hike over rock and dirt—fun for all ages. Please bring the kids, but leave the strollers behind; there are steps and slopes on the pathway that make it inaccessible.

The walking tour includes the hike, dinner, a concert by Buddy Davis, and a showing of Extreme Caving.

Advanced Spelunking and Overnight

Why go home when you can spend the night with us in the cave? Cumberland Caverns' "Ten Acre Room" is equipped with electrical outlets for air-mattress pumps and fully functional restroom facilities. Additional restroom facilities and showers are available outside the cave as well. You will carry your gear half a mile from the parking area to the cave, so pack light.

One of the highlights of the evening will be the chance to go spelunking! You will encounter crawls and climbs, ladders and ledges, and tight squeezes. And you will get wet and muddy! Guests will have to "test" to make sure they can fit through the smallest crevice (11 inches high) before beginning this strenuous adventure. This portion is recommended for ages six and up.

Do not participate in the spelunking tour if you have a heart or respiratory condition, knee problems, or back problems.

The spelunking and overnight adventure also includes the walking tour, dinner, Buddy Davis concert, Extreme Caving video, and breakfast the next morning.
