Battleship Cove's Nautical Nights Program include a knot tying class, storyteller, living history presenter, major motion pictures, and Morse Code class. The trip has enabled the scouts to better understand and appreciate the sacrifices made by veterans of all military branches in all wars. http://www.battleshipcove.org/overnights.asp
Adults - $55 (Each scout is required to have at least one parent attend.)
Scouts - $15
For this trip the Pack will be funding a portion of the scouts tickets (normally $55) in order to be consistent with the approach of the other two Packs. While each Pack is subsidizing the scout tickets, the subsidy may vary from Pack to Pack depending on their finances and programming plans for the year. For example, one Pack has a much higher wreath sale minimum (each scout must sell a minimum of 25 wreaths which provides them with a stronger cash position). Our Pack Committee has chosen to keep our wreath minimum lower, at 15 wreaths. This volume allows us to operate our Pack and pay for regular operating expenses, but not typically finance scout overnights such as this. The Committee has also historically wanted to spend finances on things that will benefit ALL scouts, not just those who are able to go on overnight trips.
We currently have 50 spaces reserved for Pack 97 and these usually fill fast. Please RSVP to Jo Greystone by phone (617-312-5767) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Checks are due by the next Pack Meeting on Thursday, January 17th. These spaces will fill quickly, so please respond asap so that it may give us time to request additional spaces if necessary.
Battleship Cove serves as the Commonwealth's official memorial for Massachusetts citizens of all militarybranches who lost their lives in World War II, and the Korean, Vietnam and Persian Gulf conflicts, and most recently, the Commonwealth's victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Preserving five National Historic Landmark naval vessels, Battleship Cove also delivers educational programs that expose a national audience of 60,000 youths to a mission that promotes duty, honor and country.
For more information please visit their website at http://www.battleshipcove.org/overnights.asp and see the attached flyer.
