About Field Camp & Cost

This is a 5 week, 6-credit capstone course in field geology held at the beginning of summer every year at the Lost River Field Station, located north of Mackay, Idaho.


How To Choose A Field Camp

Field camps are not all alike. You should decide what you hope to learn at a field camp and then shop around to see which one is best for you. Locations, instructors, pedagogy, and price are some of the items to consider.


Application & Scholarship Opportunities

Applications for our field camp open November 1st. The deadline for early acceptance is January 20th. Be sure to apply before the mid-January deadline! Our course fills up fast and we turned away many great students in 2021 because we were already full. Scholarship opportunities are available.
