Treasure Hunters Birthday Party Package

Our “Treasure Hunters” birthday party package is designed to suit smaller group sizes, with minimal staff involvement, allowing you to host a family-focused small group celebration. 


Priced at $229, our Treasure Hunters Party Package is an affordable, fun, easy, and engaging party option.  A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the party date and time and applies toward the balance due.  

Package Details

  • Up to 10 participants total, including the birthday child and guests. This is our maximum participant number, our in-store parties are small, family-focused celebrations.   
  • 1.5 hours total party length (90 minutes). Party guests mine for approximately 20-35 minutes. You can utilize the remaining time in the party room to serve cake and open presents.  
  • Each party guest receives one exclusive party-sized Gem & Mineral bucket, which is 50% larger than our Rockhound size bucket.  
  • Family-hosted, self-guided experience with minimal staff involvement. 
  • Includes the use of our party room stocked with paper products (plates, napkins, and forks), table coverings, and bottled water for your guests.  All you need to bring is the cake and the candles!  You may bring other food or drinks to the party, for a $35 food service fee. Please note that due to timing and logistical challenges, we do not allow for food deliveries (door dash, uber eats, etc.)
  • Minimum age requirement: The birthday child should be turning 5 years of age or older.  Participating party guests may be of any age, although the activity is recommended for ages 3 and up.
