FAQs
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 that day.
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, where they will be greeted by Camp Intrepid staff. All children must be accompanied by a guardian and checked in with a Camp Intrepid staff member.
Do you have parking?
Temporary parking, available only while dropping off or picking 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?

Campers are welcome to bring their own lunches, but if you wish to order lunch for your child, lunch order forms will be included in the welcome package sent to you after registration. Campers cannot buy their own lunches at the Museum, and campers will not have access to a refrigerator or microwave. Lunches are kept in our temperature-controlled classrooms.

Camp Intrepid is a nut-free camp.
How do I order lunch
Lunch is ordered in advance from a Museum vendor and delivered fresh every day. Lunch order forms will be sent to families after campers are registered. All lunches are nut-free.
Do you provide snacks during the camp day?
Nut-free snacks such as pretzels, popcorn, crackers, fruit cups and fruit bars are provided once in the morning and again in the afternoon.
What does my child do at Camp all day
A sample schedule is available here. Each day of camp varies and is subject to change. Projects and activities relate to the themes of the week and are tailored to the ages and interests of the campers.
What is the Exploreum?
The Exploreum  is a fully interactive exhibit space on the Museum’s hangar deck. The Exploreum features interactive exhibits designed specifically for children and families. Exhibits focus on the Intrepid Museum’s main themes of water, air, space and life at sea. At the start of the day, campers have the unique opportunity to interact with these exhibits before the Museum opens to the public.
Will my child receive any camp items?
Yes. Each week campers receive a new Camp Intrepid shirt and water bottle. Campers receive their shirts and bottles on Monday, but because the shirts are used to identify campers at the Museum and the water bottles are used throughout the week, these items are usually not brought home until Friday or the child’s last day of camp.
