Fun & Learning with Gems, Fossils, and Artifacts!

Camp sessions are filled with fun and digging deep underground to explore where gemstones, fossils, and artifacts come from, what makes each one different, and how to be a detective and discover a gem's true identity, source, history, and more!

Curriculum has been reviewed by an early childhood curriculum specialist and teacher with 20 years experience.

I'm a professional gemologist with a degree from the Gemological Institute of America. I absolutely LOVE talking about gems - and even more looking at them all day long! I enjoy filling camps with interactive games, hands-on activities, and learning that feels like fun!


Gem camps combine all my passions: teaching blossoming young rock lovers all about gemstones and what makes them special!

Let's dig in!
