We had 4 generations and we all had fun. Learned a lot and even found some crystals. The owners are very informative, kind and eager to share their knowledge. Planning on another trip. Thank you Orville for your time with the family.
We had a great time digging crystals at Board Camp. Orville and his wife were very friendly and have a load of knowledge they are willing to share. We originally planned to only stay a few hours but ended up staying all day and left...More

We heard sounds we couldn’t explain, photographed incredible orbs, and witnessed...More

It is kind of a "tink" versus a "thud". I really wasn't great at that part....I think it takes practice. However, I found many rocks with crystals. Side note: I did read on their Facebook page that they are closing for a month or two beginning May 21, 2017.
