You don’t have to join the US Navy to sleep over on an aircraft carrier. The Intrepid Sea, Air + Space Museum is offering young adventurers the chance to experience 2012 Operation Slumber, which includes such activities as a scavenger hunt, a ride on the Intrepid’s XD Cosmic Coaster, a souvenir t-shirt, goodies, and more. Sleepovers are each Saturday night in March — the March 3rd slumber party is girls only, and there’s one for boys only on April 20th. Cost is $120 per person, and the Intrepid recommends kids be 6-12 years old for this overnight experience.
