Our award-winning overnight encampment program features dinner and breakfast served from the chowline, a guided tour of the Battleship, a ride in the 4D Flight Simulator and the opportunity to sleep in the bunks that the crew of the USS New Jersey once did!
Plus, girls can participate in a USO-style show, complete with performers in period dress and learn about how women helped build the Battleship during WWII. Girl Scouts will also get a “Women Serving Our Nation” badge!
