Day Camp: Save the Bees

November 10, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

*Sold Out*

Bees are in trouble! Since 2006 entire hives have been dying from what scientists call “Colony Collapse Disorder.” Worker honeybees are disappearing. Without the worker bees, the hive, or colony, can’t survive. Scientists don’t yet know the exact cause of CCD. Diseases, parasites, loss of habitat, and poor nutrition are all thought to contribute to CCD. However, research is pointing to pesticides as the main cause of CCD. We will have a highly participatory classroom presentation from a local Beekeeper. Campers will perform experiments, taste fresh honey and make a honeycomb candle. Can you help save the bees?

Explore & More follows New York State Health Department, NYS OCFS Regulations, and CDC guidelines, as we are a licensed School Age Child Care Program. Campers will need to provide lunch, two snacks and a water bottle.

Late pick up is available from 4:00-4:30 pm, $25 per child, per day. MEMBERS $60 / NON-MEMBERS $65
