Camp Store @ CityPoint
Camp Store worth visiting?We went there last weekend with my almost-2-year-old and I had the same concerns, because I thought you had to pay for activities. It turns out you can play in their play space for free and it’s so much fun! I’d say it’s more geared towards 5 and under. You don’t have to spend any money at all when you’re there. When you walk into the store, ask for the play space and they’ll show you the secret elevator that leads to it! My daughter loved it.
Camp Store worth visiting?The Brooklyn Camp store is pretty cool, but I think the one in Manhattan near Union Square is cooler. Mostly because the climbing/play structure (which is free) is more elaborate. The downside of either store, as you noted, is that kids will want to spend a million dollars. The toy and book selection is pretty unique and well curated compared to other toy stores. You can find some cheap things. Personally, I think $30 per class is too much for the activities. We did one and it was fine, but I would have rather gone and supported our local paint ceramics store which is the same cost for the activity, if not less. I signed my five year old daughter up for a free class this afternoon (Friday) at the Brooklyn camp store (diorama making). Once in a while a brand, like Native Shoes, will sponsor a class. The one tip I will give you is to sign up for the free "Membership." You accrue points pretty quickly for stuff like free coffee or snacks and even activities.
12/26/19 Advice re: CAMP Store at City Point?We were just there the other day and loved it! Just immediately ask to head downstairs - it wasn't too crowded. They sell coffee/teat but it's pretty basic. Otherwise enjoy!
12/26/19 Advice re: CAMP Store at City Point?We were just there today and our 3.5 year old had a great time. We initially went to do the class but didn’t sign up ahead of time (which apparently we were supposed to) - they said we could sign up for a drop-in while there but in the end our daughter was happy playing in the store. It wasn’t crowded at all. She did coloring, there’s a slide, balls, play kitchen, and these awesome horses the kids can ride around on...all the staff were super friendly. The only thing to be aware of is that it’s basically a huge toy store and our daughter picked out many many things she ‘needed’ - she left with one treat but it’s a very appealing store. We went for lunch after in Dekalb market and then popped into TJs. Was a fun day! Good indoor activity. Have fun!
