More information on Lehigh Field Camp costs
We have made every effort in the face of rising fuel, camping,
and food costs to keep Lehigh Field Camp as affordable as possible.
We pride ourselves at not having hidden costs. Unlike other camps that
require significant travel to the instruction location, we provide all travel
from and returning to Lehigh. For the trip west, we also can pick you up
along the way sometime during the first 4 days between Lehigh and
Badlands National Park. (see more information on travel and pick-up
in the registration materials).
For 2013, there has been a small increase in costs over 2012.
The $3800 fee for 2013 covers the following:
~7,000 miles of travel
32 nights of camping in some of the most beautiful campgrounds in the country
30 equivalent days of food - 3 square meals a day. Good food and lots of it.
ArcPad GIS mapping on Apple I-Pads
A map board valued at $25
A grain size chart valued at $15
A hand lens valued at $15
A hard-backed field notebook valued at $10

You will have some out of pocket expenses that experience
tells us will

~6 Breakfasts, lunches, and dinners (combined) for the long travel
at the beginning and end of our travels
