Calling all Scouts!

Join us in the Charlestown Navy Yard for Scout Day–a special day of activities just for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Scouts will learn about life at sea in 1812 and life in the Navy today, all while meeting requirements for scout rank advancement badges. Explore the Museum and Ship as you stop at different activity stations throughout the Navy Yard. There will be something for all ages, so come as a scout, a family, or as a troop! All registered scouts will receive a special USS Constitution Museum Scout Day patch.

Activities include:

  • Tour USS Constitution, a national landmark. Don’t forget to bring your troop’s American flag to fly on board and fold with a Navy crew member.
  • Ship Design Challenge: build and race your own ship out of household materials.
  • Knot-tying challenges and 1812 sailor games.
  • “Paint a battle” and “Make a Captain’s Hat” maker stations
  • Participate in a mock 1812 gun drill with your troop.
  • Q&A with USS Constitution’s active-duty Navy crew.
  • Write a thank you note to a veteran in honor of Veterans Day.
  • Participate in the Scouting for Food collection to benefit local Charlestown residents and the Harvest on Vine food pantry.

A  full list of activities and related badge requirements is coming soon.  Please note, the Museum will provide evidence of completed activities, but will not provide any merit badges at this event.

Advance registration is strongly encouraged. Registration opening soon! Questions in the meantime? Contact our Education team at groupreservations@usscm.org.


This event is part of the Museum’s Salute to Service Initiative, supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
