A firm favourite every year, this camp is a real crowd pleaser (and with good reason too). As a group, we'll be looking at diversity as it pertains to the world of bees, making sure to mirror the diversity of others in the animal kingdom. Are all bees created equal? We’re aiming to find out. We will spend a sunshine filled week examining the spectrum of bees, from honey to mason to bumble to leafcutter and beyond. We will turn our observations into mini identification books. All of this knowledge will no doubt build up an insatiable appetite in our young apiarists, so we’ll make sure to fill them to the brim with delicious treats along the way. Beginning our culinary journey with a healthy honey salad, students will then set their sights on those with a decidedly sweeter tooth. Hopping off the knowledge train for honey cake, honey lollipops and a refreshing glass of honey lemon iced tea, no one will be left wanting more. Like previous bee camps, the group will spend an afternoon visiting Christianne’s garden and the family’s very own honeybees. With suitable protective gear, they’ll be able to get up close and personal with these spectacular creatures and be treated to a presentation by bee experts, Ian and Karim Hayward.
