Resources for Field Camp

Multi-week (commonly three to six week) field experiences (field camp) are an important part of the undergraduate geoscience program in which students see fundamental geologic relationships and learn to make observations, collect data, and synthesize information. Students and faculty can find a list of field camps, teaching resources for field experiences, funding opportunities, and field resources from NAGT sponsored projects.
