Idaho Falls Zoo and Museum of Art team up for spring break camps

IDAHO FALLS — The Idaho Falls Zoo and the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho are collaborating to bring spring break camps to the community for kids ages 5 to 13. Children will discover the science and art of animals in both facilities!

The four-day camps run from March 21-24, two of the days spent at the zoo participating in up-close learning with the animals and two of the days at the art museum creating fun animal art.

Here are the camp topics:

Art saves animals (5-8 years): Observe the natural behavior of animals and create unique works of art (Monday and Wednesday at the Art Museum; Tuesday and Thursday at the Idaho Falls Zoo). March 21-24 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Conservation Creations (9-13 years): What is conservation and why is it important? Become a conservation officer and learn how you can save animals through art (Mondays and Wednesdays at the Idaho Falls Zoo; Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Art Museum). From March 21 to 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
