Class Type

Interested in bringing your own kids, home school group our scouts to our store to learn about bees? We love teaching about bees and especially to kids. We can all remember our first experience with a bee when we were a kid, so we love the idea of being about to share bees with kids in a safe way. 

 

A class can be held at your location (mileage may apply) or at ours, and we will schedule a time that works for you. Just message us some dates and times that work great for you. Each of these classes is designed for around 20 people, as that gives everyone the best opportunity to see and ask questions. We can do larger groups above $20; we charge only $1 per person above 20 to cover the extra supplies need for the larger group. We will invoice this after the class. 

 

Our kid-focused class is 60-75 minutes and is designed to talk all about how bees and beekeepers work through an interactive class where kids can see a real colony of bees in our observation hive and touch, smell, and taste the different products that bees make.

 

We organize these classes for groups that can bring their kids to our store in Downtown Birmingham, or we can come to you. When coming to the store we will

 

We love doing private kids classes for homeschool, nature clubs, and scouts. 

 

Kids should expect to learn how bees interact with our environment and why they are important. We'll talk about the 3 types of honeybees that live inside a beehive and what they all do. We will play fun find the queen games with the kids as well as talk through how a bee grows all the way from an egg to a honey forager. 

 

Kids love this class and we try to make it as interactive and interesting as possible. 

 

Even though this class is designed for kids, we have found that adults enjoy the class as much or more than the kids.
