Camp Moose

    Fred the Moose

    Fred has been a longtime beloved neighbor at Pyoca, residing in the Jackson-Washington State Forest right next to camp. He is most well known for his song "There Was a Great Big Moose," a campfire favorite during summer camp. Fred has been known in recent years to make occasional appearances when he would hear campers singing his song, but has recently made his debut as the official camp mascot of Pyoca.

    You can follow his adventures on Instagram at @pyocafred, and see his popular #moosemonday appearances on Pyoca's Instagram @pyocaofficial.
