Don Stockley

bee keeper, Educator, adventurous spirit, environmental awareness advocate

Did you know male honey bees do not have a father? What started out as curiosity about the natural world has become a passion to educate others of the value of honey bees, native bees, pollinators and the environment required to support them. Don Stockley of Sweet 16 Apiary has always had an adventurous spirit and a deep connection to the outdoors. He spent his youth in the forests and lakes outside Toronto, Canada and is currently a scout leader on high adventure backpacking and canoe trips with his troop in Newark, Delaware.

Don and his wife Deborah will soon be integrating a hive of honeybees on Camelback property that guests can tour and interact with! The honey produced by our Camelback Bees will then be used in drinks and dishes at our restaurants and more. You will see Don and Deborah tending to our hives at Camelback Resort or leading activities in the lobby to help you find the queen!
