|G-Camp Details & Registration|
G-Camp will provide teachers ...
not only an introduction to the principles of geology, but also the opportunity to obtain curriculum materials to teach the TEKS objectives required for grades 5 - 12. During the sixteen days we will explore the geologic landscapes of Texas; volcanic features; ancient marine deposits; sand dunes; faults; glacial landscapes; streams; landslides; caves; energy resources; and mineral resources. G-Camp will travel from College Station through Texas to New Mexico and Colorado. We will go from slightly above sea level to locations higher than 13,000 feet. The views and knowledge will take your breath away!
We travel by commercial bus to each field location and stay in motels along the way. Although we will not be walking long distances each day to reach outcrops and landforms, being able to walk a couple of miles during the day is a requirement for participation in G-Camp.
G-Camp participation does not end with the sixteen day camp. Participants are required to attend a workshop that is conducted in the fall as follow up to the summer field camp. This workshop focuses on the integration of inquiry learning with TEKS objectives to bring the excitement of geology in the field to learning in the classroom.
