Would you like to mine for "Diamonds"? Learn about all things "Rocks" and earn your Geology Merit Badge? While participating in a great Troop 45 Campout?
We have a great weekend planned for October 21 - 23, when we will be going to the Herkimer Diamond Mine. The Diamond Mine puts on an educational program specifically for BSA Scouts where they can go through all the requirements for the Geology Merit Badge in one day. Scouts will also go into the "Mine" and dig for Herkimer "Diamonds". The day ends with an Awards Ceremony where Scouts will receive their Blue Cards and possibly some special awards for Find of the Day, Rock Hound, and Future Paleontologist. We will be tent camping in the KOA Campground right next to the Mine.
The cost of this outing will be $50 per Scout. $25 for our typical campout fee and $25 to cover the cost of the Merit Badge program.
Lunch is included in the program and the Scouts need to pick from Hamburger, Hot Dog or Grilled Cheese. Sides of chips, applesauce, cookie and a beverage are also included.
Registration deadline is, Wednesday October 5th. Earlier than our typical campouts because of the Merit Badge program. Please include a lunch selection for each attendee.
