2016 EAS Beekeeping Academy
The Beekeeping Academy is a one day camp for up to twelve kids going into grades four through six. Students will spend their day in a fun and educational immersion into the world of the bee. During the morning hours, we will take an in-depth look into bee anatomy, biology, and sociology, and their vital role in our food system. The afternoon will be spent up close and personal with honey bee hives and native bee observations. Throughout the day students will learn about present challenges bees face, and how they can be part of the solution in the bee’s survival.
Exact drop off and pick up location will be send to students the week before the academy.
The camp will run on Thursday, July 28th from 9:00am to 3:00pm at Stockton University in New Jersey. Students can register at www.easbeeacademy2016.eventbrite.com. The 2016 Bee Academy is a collaboration between the Eastern Apicultural Society, the Foundation for the Preservation of Bees, Stockton University, and Bee Girl.
