What's Included

We take an extended journey into the world of the invertebrates known as insects. We will examine different kinds of insects and how they are connected to us in the ecosystem. We will look closely at certain types of insects to understand their anatomy, food, and habitat. We will also examine their metamorphosis, from eggs to full maturity. Campers will have many opportunities to perform projects that bring various aspects of the world of insects and their ecological roles to life. Insect related projects at the intersection of art and science will be performed. We will also enjoy insect related educational games. Campers will be exposed to thousands of live, preserved and replica insects at the Wildwood Insectarium. They will explore our role in preserving endangered animal species at the Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge.
