GeoCamp Amazon 2023 offered by NCGE (National Council for Geographic Education) and Jamazon Journeys is a unique professional development opportunity for educators of all levels to experience the extraordinary region of Loreto in the Peruvian Amazon.
GeoCamp Amazon is a place-based intensive short course in geographic inquiry and field methods for in-service teachers and education professionals. The incredible wonders of life in the Loreto region of Peru, including Iquitos and the Peruvian Amazon are our classroom. All seven essential elements of geography will be incorporated as we explore how plants, animals, and humans interact in this extreme environment.
The experience and course will draw content from all of the geographic themes including physical geography, human settlement, and environmental adaptation; changing geopolitical spheres of influence; sense of place; and global environmental change.
