Natural disasters, political changes, weather conditions and various other factors may force the cancellation or alteration of a field school. IFR recommends students only purchase airline tickets that are fully refundable and consider travel insurance in case a program or travel plans must change for any reason.
General information for this program is below, but keep in mind we will discuss any updated travel information and regulations during the required program orientation, which could affect travel plans.
For the Amache field school, students are required to arrange their own travel to the Denver metro area or to Granada, Colorado where the field school takes place.
- Students who are flying should arrive at the Denver airport on June 16, 2024 and then travel to the University of Denver.
- Students who are driving may either meet at the University of Denver by 8 am on June 17 to caravan to the field site, or may arrive directly at the field site in Granada on the afternoon of June 17.
Project staff will assist students with travel plans.
If you miss your connection or your flight is delayed, please call, text or email project director immediately. A local emergency cell phone number will be provided to all enrolled students.
We will travel from the field house to the site each morning following a short crew meeting. Students will travel in a vehicle with members of their immediate work team.
No visas should be required unless you are a not an American citizen and require one to enter the country to attend the field school. In those cases, please check with the U.S. Consulate in your home country.
