about this item

Welcome to Bug Camp, where every day's an adventure!

Every summer, entomologists around the world offer bug camps to kids, hoping to share the wonders of insects with the next generation of explorers and creative thinkers. Now, biologists Tim Forrest and Jen Hamel bring their decades of bug camp experience to a book filled with games, experiments, cool facts, stories, and good, old-fashioned fun. Rain or shine, indoors and out, Bug Camp is filled with adventures and wonder.

Discover insect mouth parts that chew, siphon, pierce, and absorb and antennae that smell and hear. Learn how to identify crickets and katydids from their songs and how to find firefly signals and honeybee waggle dances. Collect caterpillars, and watch them morph into butterflies and moths. Go on scavenger hunts to find cool predators, prey, and parasites. Conduct experiments and collect Citizen Science data. With hundreds of insect photos from around the world and millions of real insects in every neighborhood, kids will never get bored with Bug Camp. Start packing!
