What time does Camp start and end?
Camp begins at 9:00am every day and ends at 5:00pm. Campers can be dropped off as early as 8:30am and picked up no later than 5:30pm.
What if my child needs to leave earlier than 5:00pm?
Children who must leave before 5:00pm can be picked up at our early dismissal time of 3:30pm. Please notify us at morning check-in or send an email to us by noon.
Where do I drop my child off?
Children should be dropped off at West 46th Street and 12th Avenue in front of the Intrepid Museum. All children must be accompanied by a guardian and checked-in with a Camp staff member.
Do you have parking?
Temporary parking only as you drop-off or pick-up your child is available on 12th Avenue between 45th and 46th Streets. The entrance to the parking lot is located on the northbound side of 12th Avenue, across from the Museum.
Does the Camp provide lunch?
Camp Intrepid is a nut-free camp. Campers are encouraged to bring their own lunches, but if you wish to order lunch for your child, lunch forms should be filled out two weeks prior to your child’s Camp week. Campers cannot buy their own lunches at the Museum nor do campers have access to a refrigerator or microwave.
How do I order lunch
Lunch is provided by a Museum vendor ordered in advance and delivered fresh every day. Campers receive a nut-free lunch of a sandwich, chips or fruit and a bottle of water. The forms to order lunches will be sent to families after campers are registered.
Do you provide snacks during the camp day?
Nut-free snacks are provided once in the morning and again in the afternoon. We also provide water and/or juice with our snacks.
What does my child do at Camp all day
A sample schedule can be previewed by clicking here. Each day of Camp is subject to change. Projects and activities relate to the themes of the week.
What is the Exploreum Interactive Hall?
The Exploreum Interactive Hall is a 13,000-square-foot, fully interactive exhibition space on the Museum’s hangar deck. These interactive exhibits are designed especially for children and families to discover the Intrepid Museum’s main themes of water, air, space and life at sea. Campers have the unique opportunity at the start of their day to interact with this space before the Museum opens to the public.
What is the X-D Theater?
Located in the Museum’s Exploreum Interactive Hall, campers have the opportunity once a week to enjoy this 4D motion ride theater. Each seat brings a wide range of dynamic 4D simulation and vibration, combined with 3D graphics, high definition sound and unmatched speed.
What is the Beast ride?
The Circle Lines’ “Beast” is a 30-minute fun-filled speedboat ride that takes our campers down to the Statue of Liberty and back to Pier 83 at 42nd Street and 12th Avenue. Only campers in the summer sessions of Camp Intrepid will enjoy once-a-week visits to the Beast ride.
When do campers ride the Beast?
Every week in the summer session, campers embark the Beast at 4:00pm on Wednesdays. We will reschedule to later in the week in the event of rain. For more information, please click here.
Where do I pick my child up after the Beast ride?
We will dismiss campers from the Beast ride at 4:45pm from Pier 83 on 42nd Street and 12th Avenue, just down the street from the Intrepid Museum. There is NO late pick-up on boat ride days; therefore the latest pick-up is 5:00pm.
Will my child get wet on the Beast?
Most campers will get wet while on the ride, but do dry off fast in the summer sunshine. Parents/guardians may wish to bring a change of clothes for their camper to change into at dismissal, as we do not go back to the Intrepid Museum after the ride.
What if my child wishes to not ride the Beast?
Early pick-up at 3:15pm at the Intrepid Museum can be arranged for campers who wish to refrain from riding the Beast.
Will my child be provided with a Camp t-shirt?
Yes. Each week there is a new Camp Intrepid shirt. Campers receive their shirts on Monday, but as they are used for ID in the Museum and on the boat ride, they do not take their shirts home to keep until the end of the week.
