Camp BioPark Registration Now Open

More than a dozen summer classes available for childrenin pre-school through ninth grad.

March 6, 2019 - Registration is now open for summer sessions of Camp BioPark, an interactive camp for children in pre-school through ninth grade.

There are more than a dozen classes to choose from, and classes take place at the Zoo, Botanic Garden and Aquarium.

At Camp BioPark, children learn science through hands-on activities such as investigating the teeth of sharks and rays to discover what they eat, creating their own miniature Japanese Garden and preparing enrichment for zoo animals.

"Camp BioPark is educational and great fun," said Cheri Vogel, ABQ BioPark curator of education. "The experiences offered at camp create life-long memories for campers."

Camps, which run weekly from June 3-July 26, 2019, include both indoor and outdoor activities with time for snacks and lunch. Camps for students in grades three through nine include at least one behind-the-scenes tour and zookeeper or aquarist interaction. All activities are subject to staff and animal availability and there will be no classes July 1-5.

Both full-day and half-day options are available and children can sign up for two different half-day camps occurring on the same day. Child care is available during lunch for campers attending two half-day camps in the same location.
