Camps and Club

Students working on fossil in the field

While not everyone chooses to make geology or mineralogy or paleontology their life's career, many people have a passion for these subjects. Every summer, the Museum offers Field Paleontology Camps to give participants a taste of field work.  Camps include supplies, handouts, instruction and (generally) transportation. 

The Paleontology Club is an organization for students at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology who wish to promote paleontology in the Black Hills community.
