Friday Camps at Butterfly Pavilion

Upcoming  Friday Camps

This winter and spring we will be having a full day and half day camp-style workshops every Friday and on all out of school holidays to support learners ages 5-12.  Whether your kiddo is doing remote learning, in-person, or a hybrid, we are here to support your families and children with fun, interactive themes with a safe cohort of students each week!

Friday April 30: Tie Dye
Have you ever wondered where people got the idea to dye clothes? How did ancient people actually accomplish this? Join us as we learn about where some tie dye has come from and how it affects us today.


Friday May 7: Bug Classification - How exactly do scientists group animals? Is there a way to classify an animal just by looking at it? Spend the day with us as we learn what it takes to group different animals together and test your knowledge with some of our own animals!


Friday May 14: Endangered Species -What does endangered mean? What do people do to help these animals that may go extinct? Join us as we learn about why animals are becoming endangered and what you can do to help.


Friday May 21: Incredible Pets - Have you ever wanted a tarantula for a pet? What about a fish? How hard can it be to take care of these animals? Come learn all about the best practices for owning these animals someday, with parent permission of course!
