BGO Butterfly Camp

The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks will host a four-day Butterfly Camp for children ages 8 to 12 years old this summer!

BGO butterfly volunteers will lead campers 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.  Topics for study include:  habitat, life cycles, butterfly behaviors and coloration and defense.

Campers will leave with an appreciation for butterflies and other pollinators.  All campers will also receive a caterpillar and caterpillar keeper/cage to raise at home!

Campers will meet at the Education Cottage and Butterfly Gardens and should bring a sack lunch.

July 31 – August 3 from 9:00 am-3:00 pm

Price: $150 per camper for the week, plus a $25 nonrefundable material fee and deposit
