Summer Entomology Camps

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!
