Keeping people Covid  safe at the YSS

To keep members and guests COVID safe at the school please follow these simple rules:

  • If you have symptoms, test Covid positive or a member of your household is isolating, then you shouldn’t be using the facilities. Please stay at home. 
  • If you are very vulnerable or not had your jabs you may wish to delay your visit. - it’s a personal choice 
  • Sanitising stations will still be kept in place. Please use these.
  • Please keep kitchens, communal areas, showers and toilets clean. Wash your hands.
  • If you want to wear a mask, that’s fine, we will respect it and will ask all members and guests to respect that. 
  • Similarly, please respect peoples personal space especially at pinch points (stairs, corridors etc.)
  • If you are a visiting group, you will be allocated a dormitory with a set number of beds. Please stick to your dormitory. Some dorms may have mixed groups.
  • The Members’ dormitory is for members and their personal guests only. 
  • All guests whether members or otherwise MUST book in advance.
  • We recognise that this is a difficult and confusing time for everyone. Please respect others and be tolerant of their viewpoints.

Any problems please contact a committee member or the booking secretary.

Staying at the YSS does not give entry or any right of use on the SRT Wall. If you wish to use the SRT Wall this is a separate booking system available via the SRT Wall menu selection above.


Terms and Conditions of booking

  1. Upon completion of this form, you will receive an automated confirmation. This is NOT confirmation of your booking, merely of your booking request. Our Bookings Secretary will then be in touch to confirm the booking, provided we have space. You will then be asked to pay a 50% deposit, but please do not make this payment until asked to do so by the Bookings Secretary..
  2. The deposit is refundable if written notice of cancellation is received 14 days prior to the arrival date. Failure to do so will render the full cost of the booking payable.
  3. 3. Full payment is normally made for the actual numbers staying. Please confirm numbers 7 days before your visit. Where the number actually staying is significantly fewer than the number initially booked, the club reserves the right to charge up to the full cost of the booking.
  4. Extra guests will be accepted if there is room. Please contact the bookings secretary if you wish to increase numbers as priority is always given to those who have previously booked.
  5. Day guests will only be accepted where space allows and at the discretion of the Bookings Secretary. Priority for use of any of the hut’s facilities will be given to overnight guests and members. Note: The hut facilities are not for use by people camping in the field opposite. This campsite is not connected with the YSS.
  6. All guests must sign in upon arrival. This includes day guests. This is required for fire safety.
  7. Guests are required to show respect for other groups; this includes sharing the facilities, ensuring the hut is reasonably tidy and keeping noise at an appropriate level between 11pm and 7am. The hut is to be left in a condition appropriate for subsequent guests. Our hut is run by volunteers and we expect guests to help out by doing some cleaning at the end of their visit. Any damages must be paid for and a cleaning levy will be charged if the hut is left in an unacceptable state.

There are many club organised caving weekends, with a mixture of easy and difficult caving.  Over the past few years we have given lots of people the opportunity to experience caving with our "Try Caving" events.  These are quite popular and quite a few people have subsequently joined the club. We have YSS members caving most weekends so it is easy for new cavers to tag onto the easier caving trips and find people to help with more training.
