Community - Birthday Party - Rock Hound

Their special day will be especially fun as your child and their friends play palaeontologist for the day.

digging in the dirt

Kids (ages 6-9) will have a blast digging in the dirt and discover what it’s like to be a paleontologist. They’ll learn all about rocks, history and the ancient trilobites that called Manuels River home over 500 million years ago. They’ll even get to take home their very own gem stones. It includes an hour of themed hands-on activities and games, lead by our energetic Interpretations Staff. Followed by cake and presents in our private party room. Each child will also receive a science-related gift and a treat.

Manuels River is committed to reducing our environmental impact by offering plastic-reduced Birthday parties.

We’ll provide you with paper table covers and markers so kids can decorate. Plus, reusable cups and biodegradable plates, utensils, napkins, party flags, a Happy Birthday sign and personalized, electronic party invitations. You’re more than welcome to bring your own decorations if you prefer.

Food and Birthday cake are not included. You may order delivery, bring food in from any licensed kitchen or use our in-house caterers (Frida’s Riverside Café: call (709) 834-2099, ext. 207 or email
