Boost Morale
Experience a Team Building Preview
on the
Battleship New Jersey.
Get your team on-board!

You’ve sat in conference rooms, played team building games,
maybe even dangled from ropes, and now you’re looking for
something different. . . something impactful. . . something memorable.

Imagine a team building program facilitated by Team Builders Plus,
the leading team building company in the Philadelphia area
and held on one of the most notable battleships in the
US Navy's history, the Battleship New Jersey.
 

This showcase event will allow you to preview an engaging team simulation that takes place on one of the most notable battleships in the Navy's history, the USS New Jersey.

 
 

*Please note: Battleship Adventure is a fast-paced, interactive team exercise. But don't worry, the action takes place at tables within an enclosed area on the deck of the battleship which does not leave its docked location. No weapons. No violence. Just fun and learning! You'll have a blast!

PENN BAND CAMP STUDENTS PERFORM ON THE BIG J!
07/16/2015 - 09/17/2015

The University of Pennsylvania Band (Penn Band), the marching/pep band at Penn, performed for guests touring the Battleship on July 16. The band, which also enjoyed lunch and a tour of the Battleship, performed on the forecastle (forward deck).

The Penn Band Camp program is in its 12th year and exposes high school instrumentalists to music and mirth on the historic Penn campus. The
program includes guest lectures on topics in student leadership, group-building, and conducting. Most importantly, the camp provides a fun and rewarding experience that the students will always remember.

The Penn Band Camp program is focused on music enrichment and good fun. Students play a broad variety of music
(jazz, pop, marching band, and traditional band repertoire), engage in leadership and group-building exercises, tour
Philadelphia, experience local performances, and themselves perform three times at various venues.
This year’s highlights include:

- Children’s Concert at the University Museum’s Archaeology and Anthropology Camp (Friday)
- Performance on the deck of the Battleship New Jersey at the Camden Waterfront (Thursday)
- A 3-D printing workshop with the Penn Library System (Tuesday)
- The Idina Menzel Concert at the Mann Center (Thursday)

PURCHASE A TEAK PLANK ON THE DECK OF THE BATTLESHIP
07/15/2015 - 09/30/2015

Help the Battleship replace the teak deck.

The Battleship is in the process of replacing the 53,000 square feet of teak deck, much of which is rotted and missing. Replacing the deck will cost approximately $8 million. We have replaced most of the deck on the 03 Level of the ship and have recently began replacing the deck on the forecastle.

To help raise funds to replace the deck, we have launched the “Purchase A Plank” program, part of the “Dollars For The Deck” campaign. For a donation of $1,000, you can have your name – or the name of a loved one – placed on one of the new teak deck planks on the 03 Level of the ship. The new program is similar to the “Buy A Brick” effort on our Memorial Pier. For more details, please contact our Development department at at 856-966-1652 ext. 127, or at c.perks@battleshipnewjersey.org
