USS Salem Overnight

Please join us for our Pack Overnight on a Heavy Cruiser!  It's time to mark your calendars and sign up for the Pack Overnight aboard the USS Salem in Quincy Massachusetts. Sign up and payment deadline is Friday, Feb 15th at the Blue and Gold Banquet.  RSVP to your Den Leader today!

The USS Salem is the world's only preserved Heavy Cruiser.  Scouts will get access to areas of the ship off-limits to regular guests. They even sleep in the same bunks used by naval personnel and eat in the same mess decks. 

Check-in time is Saturday April 6th at 1:00pm and check-out is Sunday between 10:00-11:00am. The cost is $45 per person (checks payable to "Pack 164"). Parents are encouraged to attend with their son (required with Tigers). We have reserved 80 spots, so this is a first reserved & paid opportunity. Scout siblings will be accommodated on a space available basis.  If affordability is a concern, please discuss with your Den Leader for scholarship opportunity.
