Gold Mining Merit Badge

The Troop had an amazing time this weekend at Scoutland Scout Camp and had the opportunity to visit Crisson Gold Mine. Crisson Gold Mine was an open pit gold mine and now serves to educate the public about the gold mining process. We got to see tons of different types of mining including a giant rock crusher in action. They even let every scout hold a jar with $15,000 in gold in it! We got to pan for gold and even for gems. When we got back to Scoutland, we explored and played around the camp until late afternoon and when we got back to the campsite, the adults had made a huge fire for everyone to sit and enjoy the evening around!
