Comcast Cares Day Aboard the Battleship @ Battleship New Jersey  | Camden | New Jersey | United States
 Employees from Comcast offices in the Philadelphia area will spend Friday, April 20 at the Battleship — not to take a tour, but rather to volunteer to paint, chip, clean, landscape, and more on and around the ship.
 Last year, several hundred Comcast employees helped the Battleship with several projects, including moving the mooring lines off the pier.
 The board, staff and volunteers of the Battleship salutes and thanks all Comcast employees for volunteering to help the Big J!

Online and Onboard Class on the USS Mason Through February @ Battleship New Jersey
Throughout February to celebrate African-American History Month, the Battleship will offer a class on the USS Mason, which had a predominantly African-American crew and was an example of desegregation in the navy.
The onboard class is free to any small group who schedule a safe tour of the Battleship in February. Groups must be less than 30 people, allow us to break the group into smaller, safer groups of 10 people maximum, pass our health screening, wear a face mask and practice social distancing of one fathom – six feet — when aboard the ship. The classes will also be a maximum of 10 people socially distanced.
The class on the USS Mason is also available as part of the Battleship’s Distance Learning program. Let our curatorial staff conduct the lesson live online to students in their classroom.
To schedule a group tour and class, or a distance learning class, email groups@battleshipnewjersey.org or call 866-877-6262 x144
