FIELD TRIPS THAT ROCK!

Do your campers enjoy field trips to fun and educational locations around Seattle in the summer?  Are you planning a geology, gold rush, or prehistoric camp theme this summer? Connect with Rock Solid Science and bring your group on a special field trip to the Maplewood Rock and Gem Club in Edmonds where you can ooh and ah at cool rock displays, crack open geodes, and learn the art of gem panning on a Mining Sluice. Participants select a loaded bag of paydirt and work the mining rough through muddy waters, discovering their very own treasures to take home!

Group programs are typically 90 - 120 minutes depending on the size of your group. Multiple activities will be offered during a group event, to keep things fresh and fun. Flat rate packages start at $350 / $300 per group of approximately 25, including chaperones. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your preferred date and time.


Package One: Gem Mining Experience + Exhibits + Geode Cracking

Flat rate for ~25 including chaperones is $350 . Includes one geode to crack open, access to discovery tables, exhibits, and a 3 pound bag of mining rough to work on the sluice (choice of fossils, gems, or arrowheads)

Package Two: Gem Mining Experience + Exhibits, no geodes

Flat rate for ~25 including chaperones is $300 . Includes access to discovery tables, exhibits, and a 3 pound bag of mining rough to work on the sluice (choice of fossils, gems, or arrowheads)


For larger or smaller group experiences please reach out for details. If you don’t see the time slot you want, Rock Solid Science can be hired to lead a program for your group at your own location. Please inquire.
