Giveaway: Butterly Summer Camp for kids at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks

Butterfly Camp, Northwest Arkansas 2017

The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is hosting a four-day Butterfly Camp this summer and we’re giving away a FREE camp spot for one lucky Northwest Arkansas kid!

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.

  1. My 9 year son is interested in this camp. He loves nature and exploring different insects and animals. He would be thrilled to win this! Thanks

  2. This is perfect for my 10-year-old, budding artist/scientist granddaughter!

  3. My 10 year old daughter SheaLynn loves butterflies and always has since she was able to walk and talk. She would call butterflies “flutterflies” when she was little. This was her connection with her grandmothers when she was little. She would thoroughly enjoy this camp! It would be an awesome early birthday gift for her also since her bday is at the end of August. Thank you so much for this opportunity!!!
