Are your campers ready to become explorers? Join us on our latest adventures at Britannia Mine Museum.
Our Camp Program is available for groups of 15 children or more. Groups must have at least one camp leader that is 19 years or older.
Included in every Museum program are the following:
Dare to venture underground into another world, where men dug deep in the search for copper. How was copper discovered? What was it like to work as an explorer at Britannia? Why is this search so important? Are you an explorer? These questions and more are answered as you delve into the world of mineral exploration.
Above ground, gold panning exploration requires the same skills as below – patience and knowledge. We provide the knowledge. Your campers provide the patience, or will they? It can sometimes be hard to remain patient when anything you find is yours to keep.
Experience the thunder of the Mill as it comes back to life and its host reveals what it did.
Rental of the Multi-Purpose Room for Lunch (30 Minutes)
Explorers of all ages need a good lunch break during a day of exploration. Rental of the Multi-Purpose room is available for $2 per person. This cost cover the set-up of the room, rental and sanitization.
Free Explore (30 minutes staff supervision)
The best exploration is sometimes the self-directed. With the supervision of our staff, your campers will be free to play in our outdoor play area (weather permitting) or discover something of their own liking in one of our exhibit spaces.
A trip to the Company Store (30 minutes in small groups with staff supervision)
Like all established mining camps of its time, Britannia had a Company Store, which carried everything you might need. The Museum’s Company Store carries on that tradition, offering a wide variety of goods, including snacks and gems – everything an explorer might want.
