Outdoor bee camp is designed to be educational, hands-on, and inspiring! Junior beekeepers ages 8-12 will learn all about the life cycle of the honeybee, the ways they communicate, and their direct relationship to the food we eat. Throughout the week, Jr Beekeepers will have the opportunity to suit up in the safety of our provided bee suits and learn about the amazing honey bee and other local pollinators. Our days are filled with explorations into nature, interactive games and bee-themed arts and crafts. After experiencing Bee Camp, your child will have a new appreciation for pollinators and a better understanding of their connection to the world we live in!
