Virtual Entomology Summer Camps

Campers will collect insects, assemble collection, perform entomology activities, and learn all about insects in this three day virtual camp, led by Texas A&M AgriLife Entomologist, Molly Keck. They will interact with instructors and each other, get virtual help with their collections and be able to share their love of insects with their fellow campers.

Campers receive an insect collection kit (net, forceps, killing jar, killing solution, pins, spreading boards, magnifier, booklet, pens, collection box, & vials) as well as all the materials needed for their guided activities and lessons.

         Camp kits are available:

Summer Entomology Camps

Campers get the chance to learn all about entomology and become junior entomologists.  We will perform experiments and activities with insects, get to hold tarantulas, roaches, millipedes and more. Campers will also collect insects and put together an insect collection.  Campers will receive a student collection kit, complete with professional net, all the materials needed to collect and pin insects, a collection bag, and collection box.  For more information, contact Molly at mekeck@ag.tamu.edu or 210/631-0400.  Camps always fill up fast with a long waiting list, so be sure to get registered as soon as registration information is posted!
