A Work Day at Camp Crosley

A week ago, we volunteered for a trip to YMCA Camp Crosley in North Webster, Indiana for some working dives. Camp Crosley has been hosting summer camps up there by Lake Tippecanoe for over 100 years.

The site itself is fairly small. Certified cave divers can get plenty of adventure at Vortex but for us recreational guys, a day at Vortex is plenty of time to see it all. We hadn’t anticipated revisiting Vortex this year since there’s so
