    Does anyone know of any soccer camps? Or more camps geared towards younger children. My son is four. Most of the camps listed in this blog are for older children. Thanks in advance!

      Hello Tara! This list includes all of the Spring Break camps we were able to find in the Albuquerque area. (If anyone knows of some we missed, please do share it with us.) Our goal is for this to be a comprehensive guide. I think one reason that most of the camps are geared to school aged children is because they are usually the ones who get a spring break from their public or private schools. Our summer camp guide will come out this week, and I think you’ll find that there are many more options. Best!
