Each field school, students are grouped into 4 teams. Throughout the week, your team will work together to complete projects and compete for the chance to attend an educational Winner’s Weekend – a reward retreat in August.
Each team consists of:
Students are housed in cabins throughout the week. Each cabin sleeps up to 6 people and includes a bathroom. The opportunity to shower in private stalls in the bathhouse will be made available every evening. All gender cabin options are available.
While at field school, a catering company serves delicious and plentiful meals. We also provide a variety of snacks throughout the day. We are happy to accommodate food allergies and dietary considerations.
Led by natural resource professionals, students enhance their knowledge base of natural history, ecology, conservation, and more through detailed lectures in the classroom and hands-on activities outdoors in the field.
You will spend time outside learning field techniques, assessing habitats, and growing your leadership skills while completing team building activities.
