On Friday night at the Fredericktown Elementary, families were treated to a visit from some of the animals of the Columbus Zoo. The family event was part book fair, part Summer Camp. There were other animals, such as an owl from the Ohio Bird Sanctuary; reptiles were on display by Marissa Durbina. The Mohican Outdoor School provided a storyteller as well as the campfire. Campers enjoyed s’mores, crafts and camp food. The event was sponsored by the Fredericktown Elementary PTO with donations from staff, parents, student volunteers and the Fredericktown Education Association.
