Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion: Summer Camp 2018

An Experience Your Child Will Never Forget

The Philadelphia Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion’s Summer Camp 2018 is an experience your kids will remember for the rest of their lives.

Campers will get an up close and personal experience caring for some of the world’s most exotic creatures. From releasing and feeding tropical butterflies, to building tarantula homes, to resorting green spaces, to eco-games, and much much more, kids will leave with an appreciation for the natural world that they will build on for years to come.
