Thanks River, Lb.  Zweefer, I am still waiting on video of the presentation to surface.  I know there were a few that took video.  I will post when I receive it.  I focused on Galatians 5:22, 23, Psalm 19:10 and Proverbs 16:24.  My wife said I took about 30 minutes.  I passed out lip balms to volunteers and those children that answered questions.  Had one fella dress up and remove the cardboard at the end of the presentation.  He and most of children (50 or so), thought the bees would escape! Ha!  Sampled honey on graham crackers and spooned honey comb from a frame for them.  They were engaged for being after 9, long day and 2/3 done with camp!  I love the education part of bees.  And guess what!  I was busy handing out honey when a counselor said, "is that the queen?"  I looked at the frame facing the children and couldn't believe it!  It was the queen!!  She stayed there for the entire evening, laying eggs and walking around.  Some new workers even hatched.  All in all, it was a pretty cool evening and experience.  I have included a video of the outside of the camp (simply because it's beautiful and peaceful) and photos/video near the presentation area inside.  You might have to turn down the audio during the end.

Absolutely great----one could hear the interest and excitement in the voices of the children.  You've made a big investment in the future of thosse campers.
