Parents, as most of you know, each year Pack 227 holds a “Fall Overnighter.” Last year we had to cancel this event because of COVID. 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 6, 2021. 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. 6th at 4:30 pm and conclude on Sunday, Nov. 7th, 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. 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 $20. The USS Iowa is located at Pacific Battleship Center, 250 South Harbor Blvd, San Pedro, CA 90731. Guest parking is provided directly adjacent to the ship in the public lot operated by the Port of L.A. Entry is at the intersection of Harbor Blvd and 1st Street or by using the Swinford Ave. entrance near the Cruise Terminal.
We have made reservations for 50 people. We need a minimum of 30 people to sign up. If we do not get the minimum then this event will be re-scheduled. Siblings are welcome. Please note that any child attending must be at least 6 years old by Nov. 6th. If you get me a check (made payable to “Pack 227”) then you are guaranteed a spot.
