Building History Kids’ Activity: Make a Catapult!

In today’s (3/22) kids activity, Building History, presented by Lockheed Martin project, we’re making catapults!

The World War II era float planes on the ship were launched by catapult; want to learn more about the ship’s aircraft?

To protect guests, volunteers, and staff from COVID-19, the Battleship will close for tours until further notice. It costs $10,000 per day to keep the ship afloat on the river. The majority of the ship’s income comes from tours and other events currently suspended.

Please make a donation to support the ship at this critical time. You can mail a donation to 62 Battleship Place, Camden, NJ 08103.

You can also donate with a credit card by calling (866) 877-6262 Extension 127, or online at
