January Campout – USS Lexington
January 14, 2022 @ 6:15 pm - January 17, 2022 @ 4:00 am
Join is for our January Chill campout on a US Naval Carrier that was commissioned in 1943 and was the longest serving carrier when decommissioned in 1991. The USS Lexington is now a museum and has many great programs for Scouts to enjoy. The boys can enjoy watching a movie in the theatre, will experience a flight simulator and other activities as we continue planning. Everyone will sleep below where sailors slept, but adults should be mindful – stairs are more like ladders, and they are steep! Everyone is expected to carry their own gear and be able to navigate the descent into the ship. Our plan is to leave Plano before 7PM on the 14th, and we will be back around 4PM to 5PM on the 17th. The Troop will subsidize this trip, so the Scouts will only pay $100 for their stay onboard. They will need a little bit of road money, but more to come on that and other details later. Payment for this trip must be made 60 days in advance, and there are no refunds inside 60 days. This campout looks like one they don’t want to miss!
