The Idaho Falls Zoo will be hosting in-person camps for kids in grades K-7 over winter break on December 21,22,29 and 30.  These unique, one-day camps provide fun, interactive activities and up-close learning with animals at your Idaho Falls Zoo. The camps are listed below:

We Want Winter! (Grades K-1): While some animals hibernate, others celebrate! Did you know certain animals rely on cold winter weather to survive? Come find out who just can’t wait for the ice and snow. Tuesday, December 21 from 9:00A.M.- 12:00P.M.

Where’s the Wildlife? (Grades 2-3): Mother Nature seems quiet in winter, but don’t be fooled! Discover where wildlife goes when the weather gets frosty, then go behind the scenes to see zoo animals in winter housing.  Wednesday, December 22 from 9:00A.M.- 12:00P.M.

Zoo Engineers (Grades 4-5):  Come investigate amazing animal engineers and explore how humans can learn from their designs!  Wednesday, December 29 from 9:00A.M.- 12:00P.M.
