Pack Event – Overnight Visit on the Battleship New Jersey Museum
June 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - June 16, 2019 @ 12:00 pm UTC+0
Join us for an overnight on the legendary Battleship New Jersey located in Camden, New Jersey (across the Delaware River very close proximity to Philadelphia) on Saturday, June 15th. The arrival time for the overnight is between 5pm and 6:30pm Saturday and will end at noon on Sunday. The overnight includes, dinner, breakfast, overnight accommodations, guide led tour of the ship, overnight encampment patch, morning and evening colors (flag ceremony). and time for a self guided tour Sunday morning. Minimum age for this event is 6 years old so please keep that in mind when signing up to attend as young siblings will not be allowed on the ship (museum policy not something we put in place).
This trip was just added to the Pack’s calendar this year because of the amazing outcome of our Fall popcorn fundraiser. We exceeded our fundraising goal and are able to support sending any scout who sold over $1,000 total sales on this trip for free – the scouts who qualify will be listed in the email you received regarding this event. Adult partners and siblings are required to pay their own way to attend. The cost for Adult partners and siblings is $69 each. This event is open to the entire Pack and therefore, if your scout(s) did not earn this trip with popcorn sales, he or she can still attend at a cost of $69 each.
The Pack needs to reserve our spot on the ship by paying $20 per person non-refundable deposit and therefore we need preliminary attendance numbers by Tuesday, January 15th. We will be collecting $20/person down payment from you for those attending (no down payment needed for scouts who earned this for free) by this date as well to hold your spot. The remaining total ($49/person) will be due by April 30th.
If you sign-up but need to cancel before the April 30th deadline, you will receive your $20 down payment back in full however if you cancel afterwards, we cannot guarantee a refund. Once we make our booking, we are only able to add additional numbers to our headcount if space is available on the ship and therefore you are encouraged to sign-up in advance if you are hopeful of attending because we may not be able to add spots later. It’s easier to cancel spots as long as we know well in advance.
There is an additional $12.50 fee per vehicle to park in the Camden City Parking Authority Garage designated for Battleship overnight parking.
Additional information about overnights on the Battleship New Jersey can be found at the museum’s website: https://www.battleshipnewjersey.org/visit/overnights/
Note that the ship’s birthing areas for sleeping arrangements will be co-ed (families sleep together) but there are separate male and female bathrooms.
We will be meeting up in Philadelphia to sight-see earlier in the day Saturday for those interested (optional) – see that event on website for details.
The overnight museum trip is a rain or shine event.
