Yorktown Adventure

Pack 1714 went on an exciting trip to Patriot’s Point to spend the night on the historic Yorktown aircraft carrier. Our Scouts got to experience a little of what it is like to live on a carrier by spending the night in bunks similar to the ones it’s original sailors would have slept on.

It was hard to tell who enjoyed exploring these old ships more, the Scouts or the parents! The museum is fairly expansive, with a significant amount of the carrier open to exploration. Nearby, the destroyer USS Laffey and the submarine USS Clamagore were also very interesting to visit.

In addition to having a fun time touring these ships, our Scouts also learned a lot about the sacrifices made by the many brave soldiers that fought on these ships and others for our great country.
