Scout Overnight at Strataca

Posted on December 4th, 2015

Overnight badgeA night at Strataca is no ordinary camp-out. Strataca welcomes Scout Groups for overnight camp-outs, 650 feet underground. They sell out quickly, but we have some spaces left in one on January 30, 2016. It’s the perfect time for your scout group to have a once in a lifetime experience.

Scouts will go on guided hikes and get to see things beyond the normal tours. Docents will explain the mining process, which involves controlled explosions, specialized heavy equipment, and processing of the salt. Scouts will get to see and appreciate the different colors of salt, and learn where it all goes once mined.

Scouts receive a special badge, only available for those who spend the night underground. Getting to spend the night this deep in the Earth, is not an ordinary experience. Make arrangements for your scout group to have a night they’ll never forget.

Strataca is open 9 to 6 Tuesday to Saturday, 1 to 6 on Sundays, and closed Mondays. The last tour is at 4
