The Santa Lucia Junior Rockhounds is a youth based subset within the Santa Lucia Rockhounds Club.
It is affiliated with the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies FUTURE ROCKHOUNDS of AMERICA program. Its purpose is to engage the youth of our club in all aspects of rockhounding.
The youth are enrolled in the FRA and earn badges within a structured program. Once they earn six badges they are designated as Rockhounds.
The youth meet during the regular club meetings on the third Monday of each month.
