Beekeeping Bootcamp 2024

Welcome to Beekeeping Bootcamp!  Are you ready to embark on an extraordinary journey into the world of beekeeping? Join us as we dive into the art, science, and sheer joy of nurturing these incredible pollinators. Whether you’re a budding enthusiast or a seasoned hobbyist, our comprehensive five-part series is designed to equip you with the skills, knowledge, and hands-on experience needed to thrive in the world of beekeeping.  

Through engaging workshops, interactive sessions, and real-life hive encounters, you’ll gain invaluable insights into the fascinating lives of bees. Learn the art of sustainable beekeeping practices, discover the importance of bee conservation, and unearth the secrets of the apiary and honey extraction. 

Work alongside Butterfly Pavilion beekeeping experts and other beginner beekeepers, developing the skills necessary to achieve thriving beehives. Beekeeping Bootcamp is taught by a qualified beginning beekeeper class instructor through the Colorado State Beekeeping Association (CSBA)! 

How it works: 

The Beekeeping Bootcamp series comprises five three-hour workshops taught by beekeeper Lorna McCallister throughout the year. Workshops include instruction and information in the classroom, followed by hands-on practice and observation in the apiary. Workshops will not include hives and beekeeping supplies but will provide informational materials and knowledge on where to get supplies from.
