Summer Field Camp - Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences - Purdue University

Summer Field Camp

Earth science majors must take a six-week summer field camp in the western United States. The camp experience brings together the various solid earth courses and helps students make the transition from classroom scholar to field-based geologist. Through the camp, students gain an appreciation of the problems professional scientists encounter. Students generally find it easier to comprehend the subject matter of subsequent courses as a result of the summer field camp, which they are encouraged to attend between the junior and senior years.
