ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Looking for that just right spring break for you and your kids?

Look no further.

Registration is now open for spring break camps for youngsters in grades two through six at the ABQ BioPark.

The camps, which run from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. daily from March 26-30, allow participants to explore a world of animals and plants through hands-on learning, games, stories, keeper chats, animal encounters and more, organizers said in a news release.

“Spring break camps are educational and great fun,” Cheri Vogel, ABQ BioPark curator of education, said in a statement. “The experiences offered at camp create life-long memories for campers.”

Camp themes include Spring Wildlife Safari at the Zoo on Monday and Tuesday, Spring Water Journey at the Aquarium on Wednesday, Spring Green Connection at the Botanic Garden on Thursday and Spring Outdoor Adventure at Tingley Beach on Friday.

The cost is $50 daily per child or $250 for the full week. New Mexico BioPark Society members get a 10 percent discount, organizers said.
