Got a Really Big Family and maybe a few friends thrown in to make it more fun? Or maybe a Church Group, or School Group, or a Club of any sort?
If you have had a group event here we would love to have some pictures!! So please e-mail us and we'll be happy to add them to the site!!
How about a Field Trip to Sheffield Mine?
** Reservations Required for large Groups**
We Love Having Big Groups!!!
Gem Mining can be both
FUN & EDUCATIONAL
for people of all ages!
15 or more actual Paid-Up Miners - $1 off per person
This includes Scout Groups of only 5 or more too!!
Each member of any Field Trip receives a Rock Hound Button
souvenir and School Groups receive a brief history of
Sheffield Mine and the Cowee Valley of NC.
**Reservations are required for FIELD TRIPS!**
But it's so EASY to Book a Trip - Just call 1-828-369-8383
and let us know what date and time that you would like to come -
we'll consult our calendar and let you know if we have an opening-
if not, we can discuss alternate dates.
Keep in mind, we are able to open 1/2 hour early to accommodate your group so that everyone gets started before the General Public begins to show up.
*In the SUMMER you can only schedule a Field Trip if your group is willing to arrive NO LATER than 9am - otherwise, you may have to wait like everyone else and instead of sitting together, your group is subject to being split up ( 3 here, 4 there , etc) and some may have to wait to even get started, so Schedule to arrive by 9am if it is a Summer Field Trip!
