Summer Geology Field Camp

Our 6-credit geology field course (GEOS 4686) is designed to instruct undergraduate students in bedrock and hydrogeology field techniques and introduce them to aspects of the Rocky Mountain and western Montana geology. The course includes visits to Dinosaur National Monument and Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Glacier, and Rocky Mountain National Parks. The course will take place May 19 to June 20, 2022. Applications for 2022 field camp are now closed. Information for the 2023 field camp will be provided at a later date.


Accepted applicants who decide to join the program must pay a $1,000.00 deposit by March 1, 2022. The exact total cost of the camp will be finalized by February 15, 2022. We anticipate a total cost of approximately $4,000.00 (tuition + national park fees + camping fees + room and board at the University of Montana Western + room and board at Elkhorn Hot Springs + fuel and travel expenses). Scholarships are available for University of Arkansas students.
