2018 Pack 12 Trip to USS Yorktown at Patriots Point.

Friday thru Sunday, March 16-18, 2018.

40 Patriots Point Road, Mount Pleasant, SC 29464


We are excited to take a new scouting adventure this year to the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown at Patriot’s Point, in Charleston, SC! Scouts will sleep in the bunks where the sailors slept, eat in the CPO mess, hop in the cockpit of a real fighter jet as they learn about aviation; in short, let their imaginations run wild!
We hope all our Scout Family can join us on this exciting adventure. The trip includes a two-night stay aboard the USS Yorktown and educational programs. It also covers four meals — breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.

If you’re planning on taking the adventure with us, you will need to make your reservations for the trip immediately. We will need to collect $20 per person to reserve your spots, and the remaining balance will need to be paid prior to the trip. Using our recent popcorn sales revenue, the Pack will be lowering the cost for every attendee… subsidizing HALF the cost for Scout members, and a THIRD of the cost for parents and siblings!

Costs:
• Deposit to reserve a spot: $20 per person, before December 18
• Scouts: $48 total ($20 deposit +$28 balance)
• Adults: $64 total ($20 deposit +$44 balance)
• Siblings: $64 total ($20 deposit +$44 balance)

Timeline:

• Deadline for deposits: 
Friday December 22, 2017

• Deadline for final payment in full: 
Monday January 22, 2018

• Trip Dates: 
Friday-Sunday, March 16, 17 & 18, 2018



Financial FYI:

• Deposits and payments are non-refundable after January 23, 2018
• Costs cannot be discounted if attendees arrive late or leave early, because both nights must be fully paid in advance.



Family Details:

• As a BSA "Family" Camping event, each scout must have at least one parent/guardian in attendance. You cannot "send" your child with another family.

• Siblings welcome! $64 per sibling. All campers must be at least 6 years of age, per Patriots Point regulations due to the content of programs and the potential challenges of maneuvering the ship.

• All males and females will sleep in separated areas. No mixed gender overnighting, so moms coming solo with their sons should be prepared to be away from each other for the night.



Transportation
• Families will be responsible for their own transportation. The Pack won't be providing group transport.

• Carpooling will certainly be allowed and encouraged! Find some buddies to ride with!
• Full details are TBD, but we anticipate leaving Knoxville before noon on Friday. We must arrive in Charleston before 8:00 pm
• Expect at least a 6 hour drive

• Destination for GPS:

Arrival:
• All groups must arrive onboard the USS Yorktown together. All members of the group must be onsite before the group will be allowed to board the ship.
• It is required that all persons sleeping on board must participate in a fire drill prior to the first night of their visit. To meet these requirements, all youth campers and adults must be on board by 8:00 PM.
• If you do not arrive before 8:00 PM, you won’t be allowed on-board.

Accommodations
• You will be sleeping where the sailors slept, in bunks on board he USS Yorktown. Don’t forget your pillow and sleeping bag!
• Pack light, in backpacks or duffel bags that can be carried some distance. Some of the ladder-ways to access the sleeping bays will be too narrow and steep for large suitcases.
• Just like the sailors, you will be eating in the crew mess hall below deck on board the ship.
• All campers sleep in the same areas as the ship’s sailors! All berthing areas are climate controlled and are equipped with electrical outlets. Patriots Point staff also has adaptors to power Nebulizers and CPAP machines and can assist campers needing to set them up
