Camps offer all ages outdoor experiences
MISSISSIPPI STATE -- Spaces remain available in Mississippi State University’s bug camps this summer, offering a different kind of family vacation.
The 15th annual 4-H Entomology Camps, often referred to as “Bug Camp,” will be June 15-19 at Crow’s Neck Environmental Center in Tishomingo County and July 13-17 at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. These camps offer an intergenerational experience the whole family can enjoy.
Bug camp experiences will include insect collecting, plant and insect interaction hikes,
tours of a bee hive, information about pine beetles and an introduction to aquatic insects. Each camper will take part in an intensive entomological experience.
The camps cost $225 per person and includes lodging, meals, field trips and transportation to various sites, along with a camp T-shirt.
