Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association’s Junior Beekeeper programs are unique opportunities for children ages 6* – 13 to experience hands-on learning about our most powerful pollinators.
Children will learn all about honey bees and beekeeping using a variety of methods before suiting up in protective gear and visiting a beehive with an experienced beekeeper! The day ends after extracting honey from a hive and participants are sent home with a personalized certificate, small bottle of honey, and other bee related goodies.
All programs are held on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Cost: $35 per child.
*Children under the age of 9 must have a parent or guardian present at all times. Parents/guardians of older children are welcome to stay if they’d like.
The facilities will have a kitchen and restroom facilities, but children should bring their lunch, and plenty to drink. (We will have extra water.)
All attendees must bring a standard Release/Waiver form signed by a parent or guardian.
All activities will be supervised by Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Association members, and protective clothing (bee suits, gloves and veils) will be provided.
