Overnight Camping


A unique opportunity to spend the night aboard a WWII-era destroyer

Hundreds of children and adults spend the night aboard the USS KIDD each year. Camping overnight aboard the USS KIDD is a fun and educational way to spend time with your organized group. You’ll experience close-quarters living firsthand and learn about the courage under fire displayed by our American heroes.
