[ARCHIVED] Idaho Falls Zoo To Host Thanksgiving Camps for Kids

Kids Camps

The Idaho Falls Zoo will be hosting in-person camps for kids in grades K-7 over Thanksgiving break on Monday November 22 and Tuesday November 23. These one-day camps will provide fun, interactive activities and up-close learning with animals on zoo grounds.  

What Do Animals Eat for Thanksgiving? (Grades K-1): We’ve invited the animals to dinner but forgot to ask their favorite foods! Can your little scientist help plan the perfect menu? Monday, November 22 from 9:00 a.m. - 12: 00 p.m.

Predators and Prey (Grades 4-5): Get up close and personal with the animals in the Idaho Falls Zoo family and find out what makes them successful predators and survivors. Monday, November 22 from 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

Zoo Crime Squad (Grades 2-3): Who is the animal mastermind behind the craziest crime of the century? Help us find the clues and solve the mystery! Tuesday, November 23 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

S.A.F.E-Saving Animals from Extinction (Grades 6-7): Explore how you can help protect precious species from going extinct. Learn about the endangered animals at your zoo and how you can teach others about conservation.  Tuesday, November 23 from 9:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m.

Registration is OPEN! Be sure to sign into your account for membership discounts. For more information, click here or visit
