Children in second through sixth grade can spend spring break on an activity-filled adventure exploring flora and fauna from all over the world at the ABQ Biopark. Camps are separated into second- and third-graders, and fourth through sixth grades.
Each day starts at 8:15 a.m., and children are expected to bring a lunch, snack and drinking water.
The weeklong program is $50 per day, and parents can sign up for as little as one day or for the full week.
