2019 Summer in Arizona is about to get a little buggy!
If creepy crawlers fascinate your child, then a summer bug camp is an ideal summer activity! Campers will learn about insect natural history and biodiversity through a series of fun project and activities. Campers collect insects and create their own insect collection, build their own bug, and cook and eat insect cuisine!
In addition to the “Summer Bug Camps” ExplorMor will also be hosting the “Traveling Arthropod Show” for school and public groups during the year.
Coming soon is a computational R-Code programming or Bioinformatic camp called “Biodiversity Counts!” for ages 12 and up.
The first camp with take place Monday, June 17, through, Friday, June 21, and the second camp will take place Monday, July 8, through Friday, July 12. Both camps run from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and will be held at Willow Bend Environmental Center, Flagstaff, Arizona.
