Summer Camp 'The Secret Lives of Bugs'
Spaces Remaining: 4
Did you know that 1 out of every 3 bites of food we eat depends on bees? Or that dragonflies begin their lives underwater? That a daddy-long-legs isn’t really a spider? Discover the weird and wonderful world of beetles, grasshoppers, butterflies, and slugs, and the important role “bugs” play in nature. Campers will hone their naturalist skills while sweep netting in the meadow, dipping for aquatic insects at the pond and stream, identifying pollinators, making bug traps, and more. Guest naturalists and field trips will enrich our nature study and fun! Each session has 16 campers, 2 educators, and at least 2 teen volunteers.
