Located in Jamestown, Gold Prospecting Adventures has been “instrumental in assisting children to experience their heritage.” The thousands of children who visit Jimtown 1849 Gold Mining Camp each year with their schools get to see how the 49ers lived and receive the hands-on experience of finding their own gold. You can learn the history of the area told by costumed prospectors and sometimes a claim jumper or two will invade the camp! Even Mark Twain may pay a visit to the camp and talk with the children.Visit their website, link above, for all the details about this unique experience.
