Family Day with the Girl Scouts of San Diego
Saturday, November 13, 2021
9:00AM – 1:00PM PDT
Event Host: Karen Merrill, Director, Youth Programs
Junior Scouts (grades 4-5) and their families are invited to experience a family-friendly tour aboard Chula Vista’s Official Tall Ship the 136-foot schooner SV Bill of Rights! This dockside event will be Open House style. Our goal is to introduce our tall ship to the local chapter of the Girl Scouts of San Diego in an atmosphere of learning and community partnership! The emphasis will be towards Living Maritime History with visits from a cast of characters from our own volunteer crew and members. Hands-on activities and live demonstrations will help the guests “get their feet wet” as to what life was and is like aboard a working tall ship.
The educational program on The Bill of Rights ship is called STEAM: We go Full STEAM Ahead for the Community! S – Science; T – Technology; E – Education; A – Arts; M – Mathematics: To benefit the public by offering programs centered around maritime history, culture, science and industry, linking experiential education, science and art in innovative learning platforms for all. We invite All to Sail the Dream!
Proceeds will go towards the programs and preservation of The Bill of Rights. We are a U.S. veteran-led, all volunteer group.
