Cub Scout Pack 227
Parents, as most of you know, each year Pack 227 holds a “Fall Overnighter.” This year we are pleased to announce that we have made reservations for an overnighter aboard the USS Iowa which is docked in the Port of Los Angeles on Saturday, November 7, 2020. We have chosen that day so as to hopefully promote maximum participation and not to conflict with other youth sporting events.
The organized youth overnight program will begin on Saturday, Nov. 7th at 4:30 pm and conclude on Sunday, Nov. 8th, at 10:00 am. Per the Camp Battleship website, “The popular youth overnight program is open year-round aboard Battleship IOWA Museum and includes a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math (STEAM) oriented tour, chow on the mess decks, evening entertainment, and much more. Above all, participants will create life-long memories aboard Los Angeles’s historic Naval ship.”
Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast are provided. Each person will be assigned a bunk within the Enlisted Crew’s Quarters. All members of our group will be sleeping in the same compartment. There are separate male and female bathrooms. Showers are not available.
The cost for “Camp Battleship” is $90 per person. The cost includes everything except parking which is $18. The USS Iowa is located at Pacific Battleship Center, 250 South Harbor Blvd, San Pedro, CA 90731 , please click here to pay through paypal on the Pack227 website.
We have made reservations for 40 people. Siblings are welcome. Please note that any child attending must be at least 6 years old by Nov. 7th. If you get me a check (made payable to “Pack 227”) then you are guaranteed a spot. This summer checks can be dropped at the St. Bonaventure School (not Parish) office, given to me at a Pack meeting or mailed or dropped off at my house (4841 Curtis Circle, HB 92649).
