February 2023 Campout - Quartz mining and hiking

Posted by tmcsimov on Jan 14 2023 - 9:38pm


When: Feb 10-12, 2023
Where: Camp Preston Hunt, Texarkana, AR
Event Details: 

This campout will give Scouts an opportunity to learn about quartz mining in Arkansas and potentially earn the Geology Merit Badge.  Mr. Bishop will run a merit badge class at a Troop meeting prior to the trip.  For the campout itself, we will camp in Texarkana to lessen the distance on Friday and Sunday for travel.  On Saturday, we will travel to Ron Coleman Mining in Jessieville, Ar.  We will dig for quartz and depart for a nearby hike after lunch.  Scouts should come back with some quartz (it is hard not to find some).  Some may come back with a few nice crystals.  Around 4:30pm, we will head back to camp, have dinner, and enjoy a campfire.  

The website for Ron Coleman Mining is:  https://colemanquartz.com/, attached waiver will need to be signed prior to departure for this campout for the activities at Ron Coleman Mining.
