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.

November – April: Storytime

When: Monday to Friday at 11:00 am

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!

July – August: Summer Tours

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)
