SCVGMS Kids Area
60th Annual Gem and Mineral Festival (formerly annual show)

Logo - California Federation of Mineralogical Societies

Kids Area is a section of the SCVGMS Annual Gem and Mineral Festival, where every child is welcome. All children attending will receive a patch, worksheet, and a beginning rock collection by visiting this area. There is a fee for participating which is dependent on which program you choose.

See the special programs and fliers below to download your group's fliers.

CUB SCOUTS and WEBELOS can complete the requirements to earn their Geology Belt Loop and Academic Pin, and Webelos can complete the requirements to earn their Geologist pin. Everything to complete these achievements is contained within the Kids Area.

GIRL SCOUTS: can earn the "Geology to Jewelry" Patch while visiting the SCVGMS annual Gem and Mineral Festival. Daisies to Ambassadors can earn this patch. The program includes a memory wire bracelet kit, rock bag with five specimens, program activity guide, and this year's "Geology to Jewelry" patch. The program is designed to be age appropriate, and because the patch changes each year can be done as a yearly outing. This program can only be completed at our annual gem and mineral festival (formerly gem and mineral show). The memory wire bracelet kit can be done at the festival or as a future project at an upcoming meeting.

Advance registration is for scouting groups. Advance registration is recommended groups of 3 or more children. Please note that some time slots fill up quickly and the earlier you purchase your group's wristbands, the greater likelihood you will get your preferred time slot. It is recommended that you indicate more than one time slot on your order form, using the numbers 1-3 (with number 1 being for the most preferred time slot).

Individual children and groups less than 3 children are requested to purchase their tickets in person at the Kids Area. In the past we have been able to get individual children and small groups of children into the Kids Area with little or no delay.
