Creep Crawly Critters / Entomology

[smartslider3 slider=8]

Who cares about bugs? You should, since about 80% of animal species on earth are bugs. If you love creepy crawly critters then you will love this course! Hold a tarantula, scorpion, even a giant hissing cockroach, and learn why they are important to our planet.

In the Creepy Crawly Critters, course campers will learn about the important contributions insects make to our planet. Try spending a day as an ant. Watch a meal worm metamorphosis into a beetle or a caterpillar into a butterfly. Attract and identify nocturnal as well as diurnal insects, build habitats or compete in the Bug Olympics! These are just some of the things you will enjoy during our week long entomology course at Cub Creek Science Camp.

Creepy Crawly Critters is just one of over 30 courses offered at Cub Creek Science Camp.  

For every week you are at camp, you will choose two camp courses. Each summer camp course is made up of five classes.

These classes are part of the Creepy Crawly Critter course:

  • Insect Safari
  • Bug Traps 
  • Bug Zoo 
  • Bug Games 
  • Bug Olympics
  • Bug Eating (Optional Course Addition)

Entomology is the study of insects. Insects provide natural services we often take for granted. They are the pollinators, undertakers, decomposers, garbage collectors, and natural fertilizers of our planet.
