Abstract:A study of field entomology in 4-H Club camps has been undertaken and found to serve a good purpose. Missouri has been studying different phases of nature study work for the past three years in its 4-H Club camp work. Each club member was to collect ten specimens of insects, mount them properly, and identify them while in camp. It has been gratifying to know that many other states have attempted this type of work in one way or another. The effect of reaching more people is a point that should not be overlooked in this type of work. Training while in camp was undoubtedly worthwhile and the effects and results in the years to follow will be interesting.
