Calling all Scouts!

Join us in the Charlestown Navy Yard for Scout Day–a special day of activities just for BSA Scouts and Girl Scouts.

Scouts will learn about life at sea in 1812 and life in the Navy today, all while meeting some 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.

Build and race your own ship out of household materials in our Ship Design Challenge.

Join in knot-tying and 1812 sailor games.

Express your creativity at the “Paint a battle” and “Make a Captain’s Hat” maker stations.

Participate in a mock 1812 gun drill with your troop.

Meet USS Constitution’s active-duty Navy crew.

Write a letter of encouragement to a new Navy recruit in boot camp.

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.

To register a scout or troop for the event, please complete our webform on our website HERE!

Family members and siblings are welcome to join in the activities.

We ask that you make a donation for these guests upon arrival at the Museum.
