Summer Camp:  Mining and Explosives

Get ready for an explosive experience and a week you won't soon forget!

You will spend the week learning the science behind explosives and seeing how engineers use detonations to unearth precious minerals, shape the landscape, or even sculpt Crazy Horse and his horse’s head from a mountain side.

You will take a close-up and personal view of mining and explosives engineering guided by trained explosives experts. Field trips to active mines will let you see blasts, and—if camp coordinators can arrange it—apply your explosives knowledge to the detonation of different materials!

Across the globe, the mineral industries are thriving with record high prices of precious metals and an ever-increasing demand for basic materials and energy.  The Mining and Explosives Camp gives students a glimpse into the world of mining engineering.


This camp is now full.
