Does your child love nature? Science? Art?
Then Planet Bee Foundation’s Bee-yond the Bees Summer Camp is for them!
We will spend each session buzzing through various STEAM activities centered on bees and environmental stewardship. Activities will include engaging with our observation hive of LIVE BEES each day, exploring the world of science and bees through hands-on projects, games, music and dance, bee-themed cooking lessons, nature walks, garden projects which can be taken home and integrated into your own yard, and more!
Campers will also get free time to play each day!
Through interdisciplinary lessons and hands-on projects, your child will connect with bees and nature in new ways, cultivating a love for the environment and new approaches to engage with our natural world and the problems it faces.
