SUNFLOWER SUMMER APP USERS: First come, first tour, call ahead to check on availability! 620-662-1425


Strataca offers two unique underground experiences that have become extremely popular with visiting Scout troops. Both experiences provide opportunities for Scouts to learn about the history and geology of the mine and the surrounding area. Scouts will also have the opportunity to explore the mine’s underground tunnels and chambers, and participate in hands-on activities that will help them learn about the mining process and the important role it played in the development of our country. Reservations are required for both experiences, and each experience is available for Scouts ages 10-18.
