Summer camp is a place for friendship bracelets, nature walks and bug juice.
But at one program in southeast Pennsylvania, children were given a whole new experience.
They were taught how to find, then crush the spotted lanternfly, an invasive insect that has become enemy No. 1 in the state.
The weeklong program, themed Hunt for the Spotted Lanternfly, was created by Centro Cultural Latinos Unidos, a Pottstown group, in partnership with other organizations.
About 27 children and their families participated in the program that ended on a recent Friday.
