BGO butterfly volunteers will lead campers — ages 8 to 12 — through hands-on lessons, citizen science projects and pollinator activities. Campers will be able to explore butterflies, caterpillars and eggs close up, and will learn to distinguish between different types of eggs using a hand lens.
The group will also examine which plants are best for pollinators and participate in real data collection. They’ll study habitat, life cycles, butterfly behaviors and coloration and defense.
Your camper will leave with an appreciation for butterflies and other pollinators — and will also receive a caterpillar and caterpillar keeper/cage to raise at home.
The camp is July 31 – August 3 from 9 am-3 pm. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP if you don’t want to take any chances on getting your kids into this camp. There are only 12 spots available, so you need to sign up fast if you want a spot.
