Education Programs for Camp Groups

The Education Department offers three programs specifically designed for camp groups during the months of July and August.

  • Little Explorers: History & Social Studies, grades pre-K–2 (ages 4-8), 60-minutes Through tactile discovery, gallery experiences and object-based learning, students study the ship, aircraft collection and interactive exhibits in the Exploreum. This program is designed for our youngest visitors, and it is timed as such.

  • Life Aboard: History & Social Studies, grades 3–12 (ages 8-18), 90 minutes Students learn what it was like to serve aboard Intrepid during a typical tour of duty in its 31 years of service. Examining artifacts,
    students become history detectives and uncover fascinating aspects of Intrepid’s “city at sea.”

  • Up in the Air: Up in the Air Aviation science, grades 3–12 (ages 8–18), 90 minutes: Exploring the Museum’s aircraft collection, students compare airplanes, helicopters and the space shuttle Enterprise and learn about the shape, design and parts of the aircraft. Educators demonstrate the four forces of flight, and students experiment with these concepts before creating their own simple flying machine.

Programs are offered at 10:30am, 11:30am and 12:30pm, Monday–Friday (subject to availability).

Capacity: 6 groups per day with no more than 30 students per group. 3 chaperones (over 18 years old) are required per group.
