Survey of Geoscience Field Camps

Below is a comprehensive list of geoscience field camps operated by colleges and universities throughout the United States. The USGS updates this list annually, so that you may find links to the most recent website available for each field camp. In instances where an institution does not provide a dedicated geology field camp website, you will be directed to the institution's geology department homepage or the department's course list. The field camps listed on this page carry at least 6 credit-hours. The NAGT/USGS Cooperative Summer Field Training Program accepts nominations from directors of these field camps.
