Field camp is an excellent opportunity to polish your geoscience skills. Mount Holyoke neither offers nor requires a field camp experience, however, we encourage it. Geology.com offers an up-to-date list of field camps. A field camp course may count for 4-6 credits in a geology major or minor.
The NSF funds research experiences around the country, most are well-paid summer internships through the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.
