The AGMC has a large and active Junior Club. Family members under the age of 18 are welcome to become members of our Junior Club where they can participate in the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies’ Future Rockhounds of America (AFMA-FRA) program. At their meeting, which starts an hour before the monthly general meeting, they are provided instruction on various areas of the Earth Sciences. They even sometimes go on their own field trips.
Each Junior Club member attending an activity, other than the regular club meetings, must be accompanied by his/her parent(s) or guardian(s). Each Junior Club member attending an out-of-town activity, including a regular club out-of-town activity, must be accompanied by at least one of his/her parent(s) or guardian(s).
No person under the age of 18 will be permitted at any Junior Club activity other than the regularly scheduled Junior Club meeting preceding the General Meeting, without the attendance of his/her parent(s) or guardian(s) who must have a family membership in the Albuquerque Gem and Mineral Club. No Junior Club member will be allowed on any out-of-town activity without being accompanied by parents or guardians who are members of the Albuquerque Gem and Mineral Club.
