Welcome to Camp Crooked Creek!

Karst-O-Rama 2021 is on from Friday, August 13 - Sunday, August 15, 2021, at the Great Saltpetre Preserve.

PRE-REGISTRATION has been extended to July 20th! Check the page on the menu above.

This "Friday the 13th" themed Karst-O-Rama will take you back to a simpler time at summer camp, with all the cave trips, vendors, splashin' in the creek and cavin' in the hills, and let's not forget Party Camp's sauna & hot tub, for three days of downright deadly fun!

Karst-O-Rama (KOR) is the annual caving convention and fund raiser hosted by the Greater Cincinnati Grotto (GCG). It takes place at The Great Saltpetre Cave Preserve (GSP) near Mt. Vernon, Kentucky. KOR is like a family reunion that's presented by cavers, for cavers (or those newly interested in caving!) and runs from Friday through Sunday. Activities include, but are not limited to, guided cave trips, cave equipment vendors, the Guano Grill at the picnic shelter, kids' activities, and caving-related contests, among other things. There is a "Howdy Party" Friday evening for everyone to get reacquainted, and on Saturday evening there is a banquet, program, and door prizes, followed by live music and a great dance party.

In honor of our horror movie theme this year, our dance party boogies back to the 1980's for prom night! Will Carrie make an appearance? Or will Michael Myers chase wayward teens? Dig out those old prom dresses and tuxes, blood stains and all, for our Saturday evening horror prom under the shelter.

Proceeds from KOR benefit both The Great Saltpetre Cave Preserve and the Greater Cincinnati Grotto's donations to other caving organizations.
