July 9 ~ 15, 2023 ~ Eco Week with Dr. Jessie Rack: Frogs, Fungi & MORE!

Welcome to Eco Week with Dr. Jessie Rack: Frogs, Fungi, and MORE!


Join Dr. Jessie Rack for a week of grabbing frogs, tromping through the woods, playing nature games, and learning about ecology – how plants and animals interact with each other and with their environment. Mushrooms! Slugs! Scat! Weird bugs! Who knows what nature will bring us to shout about? Expect to enjoy all your favorite Medomak activities with the added bonus of spending time in the woods with ecologist and environmental educator Dr. Jessie. See you at camp!
