U.S.S. Lexington Overnighter
Save the date for an epic adventure! Pack 1910 is going on an overnight trip this fall aboard the Blue Ghost, otherwise known as the USS Lexington!
Date: Saturday, Saturday 23, 2017 – Sunday, September 24, 2017
Location: U.S.S. Lexington, 2914 N. Shoreline Blvd., Corpus Christi
Cost: $55 per person (dinner and breakfast included) (11 camp card sales per person)
Dress code: Class A and B uniforms required for all Scouts.
An adventure awaits Pack 1910 when we board the USS LEXINGTON for an overnighter like no other! We'll hear stories from the ship’s illustrious past – covering topics like kamikaze attacks, the manpower it takes to navigate an aircraft carrier, and being named the “Blue Ghost” by Tokyo Rose herself. The chapters of this history lesson unfold over 11 different levels within the ship, giving their curious minds a hands-on experience that reflects on the sacrifices made by that patriotic generation, builds camaraderie, inspires love of learning and is just plain fun!
Our itinerary serves as a lesson plan and includes tours of the ship, stories of historical events from her past, a scavenger hunt, a movie in the 3D MEGA Theater, LEX ghost stories, a commemorative patch, two trips through the chow line, bunking in original crew quarters, an unforgettable flag ceremony and so much more!
We will be sending out a list with an itinerary, packing list, directions and more through Scoutbook and here on the blog. Campers must be 5 years old and will be divided at night with males sleeping in one sleeping quarters, female in another. Be mindful of that when making reservations.
(If we have enough interest, we will charter a bus again for the journey.)
Note: RSVP, paperwork and payment due by Saturday, July 8
