The Mint tour is this Monday!  This is an all day event so come prepared!  Here is the itinerary.

8:30 am:  Meet at WUMC (please be prompt!).  Depart for Denver.

11 am – 12 pm:  Families tour mint.  Tour participants must be at the tour entrance 30 minutes prior to scheduled tour (10:30 am for this group).  While families/guests are touring the mint, Scouts will be working on coin collecting merit badge requirements in the vicinity of the mint.

12:30-1:30 pm:  Scout leaders and Scouts tour mint (12 pm at the tour entrance).  Previous tour group waits at the collection point (TBD, bring a frisbie or book!).

After we have regrouped we will head to a late lunch on the way home.  We should be back at WUMC about 4:15-4:30 pm.

Scouts need to wear Class A shirt; bring their coin collection merit badge worksheets and pen; bring a completed “BSA Parent Permission Form” if unaccompanied by a parent (available under “downloads” at; and bring about $10-15 for lunch/snacks and to help cover parking fees.  If you bring your own lunch/snacks, please bring about $5 to help cover parking and any additional costs.

I’ll put together a handout that will include the address of the mint, the itinerary, driver contact information, and other important info.  See you Monday morning!
