diamond minesGirl Scouts will be out in force from September 25 to 27 at the Herkimer Diamond Mines and the KOA campgrounds for the fall jamboree and geology weekend!

So what is the weekend all about?

You’ll be able to mine, learn about gemology and the different categories of rocks, design your own gifts and jewelry, and so much more. Not only that but you can take home all the diamonds and fossils found in the mines, all the gemstones found in the sluice, and all of the jewelry and gift items you make. You’ll also be camping with all of your Girl Scout friends!

Sound like fun? All you have to do is register to attend! The cost is $23 per Girl Scout and that includes the program and mining fee. The cost per adult and sibling for mining only is $7.50 a person. Make sure you register before September 21 to take part in all the fun!

To register you can call the Herkimer Diamond Mines at (315) 717-0175 or click here to fill out the registration form.
