Spring Break Camps in the Albuquerque Area


We know finding the perfect place where your child will be safe and happy over spring break can be a challenge. Well, look no further! This is your one-stop-shop for spring break camps in the Albuquerque area.

Thank you to Menaul School for sponsoring this guide.

At Summer @ Menaul, they believe in the value of play. The most important elements of Summer @ Menaul are as follows: physical exercise and relationships, communication and cooperation skills, exploration and curiosity, problem-solving and adaptability, imagination and reflection. They think kids need ample time that is under scheduled and that provides choices to develop healthy habits. As an alternative to screen or couch time, Summer @ Menaul offers a balance of activities that support social, emotional, and physical health. Students engage in a wide variety of activities without having to specialize in one skill or subject area. Summer @ Menaul is divided into two areas: Panther Camp for ages 5-10 and Adventure and Leadership Camp for ages 11-14. The cost of Summer @ Menaul is a weekly fee of $400 which includes everything: lunch, 2 snacks, Thursday field trips, and all supplies. Child drop-off is between 7:30 am and 9:00 am. Pick-up is between 3:45 pm and 4:30 pm. Aftercare is between 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm and costs $10 per day.  Summer at Menaul begins June 10th and ends July 26th.
