Staff report

ROCKINGHAM — Nearly a dozen Richmond County children are spending this week attending Bug Camp at The Hive Recreation Center in East Rockingham.

As one can imagine, bees were the subject of one day’s study, which includes learning about the insects and their habitats. Other insects on the list include cicadas, lady bugs, butterflies, dragonflies and, today, lightning bugs.

Students have created and maintained a field journal for bugs found in the field during exploration.
