Daily Children’s Programming

Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory offers daily interactive programming perfect for young ones and the young at heart. All of our programming is included with regular admission.

**Please note that Itty Bitty Helpers will not be offered during March Break (March 14 – 18), but we would love to have you for our BugFeast! event instead!

July – August: Summer Tours

When: Monday – Sunday at 11:00am

Join us for children’s drop-in programming, with a different activity each day! No registration required. Programs include:

  • An outdoor bug hunt (weather pending)
  • A scavenger hunt in the Conservatory
  • A day in the life of a honeybee
  • Butterfly games

November – April: Storytime

When: Tuesdays – Fridays at 11:00 am, and Mondays as of March 2, 2020

Join us as we explore our very favourite bug and butterfly books during Storytime. During this 20-30 minute program we also have a “creature feature” where you will have a close-up encounter with one of our live, tropical insects! Some of our daily themes will include:

  • Bugs that sing and make other fun noises
  • Tricks that bugs use to stay hidden in nature
  • Where do bugs go in winter?
  • Baby bugs! Learn about how different bugs grow up to be big bug!
  • Bug Cousins – learn about centipedes and millipedes!

**Please note Storytime will not be offered during the Christmas or March Break, but we would love to have you for our Holidays Activities for Kids or BugFeast event instead!
