PITTSBURG, KS.--- Pittsburg State University hosted an Insect Camp. The kids had a chance to learn about the thousands of bugs they have in their backyard. They also went on a bug hunt to see how many they could catch in their nets. Organizers say the kids are amazed how many bugs they were able to find.
"It's amazing how many there are and if you take the time to look at them, how interesting they can be," said Samantha Winzer, 9-years-old.
Later this week, they will learn about reptiles and mammals.
