Albany-  The first of three Fintastic holiday camps was held Wednesday at the Flint Riverquarium.

Nearly two dozen students gathered around tables mid morning to create Christmas tree ornaments. Wednesday's camp, themed Merry Fishmas, was packed with arts and crafts and animal encounters making it a fun learning experience for camp goers.

"We talked about our baby octopus and then they learned about it in the movie, we did the spotted gar, we talked about catfish, we talked about camouflage and how animals protect themselves," said Lynn Campbell, Flint Riverquarium Environmental Coordinator.

There is still some space available in the remaining two camps which will be held December 28 and January third.
