Applications are now open for the summer session of the Intrepid Museum’s All Access Maker Camp for children with developmental disabilities, including autism, ages 8-14. All Access Maker Camp is a fun week of exploring the Intrepid Museum, solving problems, experimenting with new tools and technology, and designing projects!

 

The camp provides an in-depth learning opportunity for campers to practice social-emotional skills, including problem solving, communication and collaboration. Campers try out design challenges related to the ship, aircraft and space, and meet with experts.

 

Summer sessions will be hybrid, a mix of virtual and in-person. Campers will participate in up to four days of virtual camp. On Friday, campers will be at the Intrepid Museum for a day of exploring and celebration.

 

Intrepid Museum Now Open!

The Intrepid Museum is once again open to the public! The Museum is open Thursday-Sunday. Learn more and reserve tickets here: intrepidmuseum.org/Plan-Your-Visit.
