Are you sticking around the ‘hood for Spring Break? Plan an adventure for each day of Mommy/Daddy Camp using our list of activities scheduled in the neighborhood and ones easily accessible via the Q train. You could spend every day exploring Prospect Park. The carousel is open all week. Both the Audubon Center and Lefferts Historical House have free afternoon classes.
