NAU Summer Bug Camp returns

Children participate in summer bug camp 2013.

For parents looking for fun activities this summer that also engage their child’s mind, Northern Arizona University will again offer its Summer Bug Camp.

Campers will learn about insect natural history and biodiversity through a series of hands-on projects and activities. Campers collect insects for their own insect collections, make mazes for bugs and cook and eat insect cuisine during an open house for parents.

The Colorado Plateau Museum of Arthropod Biodiversity will host the week-long summer day camp for children 6 to 12 from Monday, July 14, through Friday, July 18. The camp will take place on the NAU campus from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and provides all the supplies needed for camp activities. Campers provide their own snacks, lunch, summer clothing and sunscreen.

The fee for the 2014 Summer Bug Camp is $165 per child. NAU faculty, staff and students receive a $15 discount per child when they register before June 15. Contact Neil Cobb for information.
