School Tours at  the Kennedy Gold Mine:


4th grade students learn California history.

The Kennedy Mine is a non-profit, volunteer historical landmark, located about an hour east of Stockton and Sacramento. The Kennedy Mine offers one of the best school tours in the Mother Lode. Our volunteer staff offers a historically accurate, educational and fun experience for students of all ages and grades. Our tours are specifically aligned with California State History Standards for grades four and five, but the tours are suitable for all grades and ages, including youth groups, special needs, high school, home school, and college students.

We Provide the Entire Program:

The Kennedy's volunteers provide the entire program, so teachers can relax and have fun with their students. No special preparation is required to enjoy the tour. Just show up, and we handle the experience.

The 90 minute surface tour includes background on early California history, the Gold Rush, and the history of the Kennedy Mine. Special Feature: Gold panning is included! All students will pan for gold, find it, and take home their own sample as a souvenir.


Panning for gold, and finding real gold to take home!
