The Battleship New Jersey hosts many private and public events on the ship.
Check out what public events are coming up on our calendar.
Second Annual Admiral Halsey Awards Dinner will take place Thursday, May 11, 2023.
Featuring Master of Ceremonies ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio
Experience a captivating evening, beautiful views of the Philadelphia skyline, live music, with cocktails and dinner on the deck of The World’s Greatest Battleship. Join us as we celebrate leaders who show excellence in military, public service and business. The second annual Admiral Halsey Awards Dinner captures the spirit of Admiral William “Bull” Halsey, a native of the Garden State, who called the USS New Jersey his flagship during World War II.
The 11th annual Camden Residents Scholarship Awards Dinner will take place in the Officers’ Wardroom on Thursday, June 8 at 6pm. This dinner will award students who reside in Camden with $2000 scholarships — an additional $1000 from past scholarship awards — to be used for their education as they move forward in their academic career.
The Battleship has awarded 100 Camden students a total of $100,000 in scholarships over the past 10 years. As we move into our next decade of scholarships, the Battleship has increased the award per student to $2000 to further help them with their educational expenses.
The Battleship has recently contacted Camden area schools regarding participating in this program. Teachers from the schools will identify students moving forward in their academic career for the Battleship scholarship. One student from ten Camden-area high schools and secondary schools will receive the scholarship, which will be awarded on the Battleship on June 8.
Any interested teachers or administrators from Camden area schools should contact the Battleship at 856-966-1652 ext. 144.
