Young Naturalist Camps
At Young Naturalist Camp, children ages 7-12 are encouraged to get their feet wet, get their hands muddy, and experience the excitement of discovering the world of nature. New this year is Family Camp Day on July 27, when campers get to invite their parents and siblings along to share in the fun. Medina County Park District’s three-day Young Naturalist camps feature a different park or preserve each day. Camps are scheduled for June 18-20, June 25-27, July 9-11, July 16-18, and July 23-25. Each camp session offers a choice between a morning option (10 to 11:30 a.m.) or an afternoon option (1 to 2:30 p.m.).
