Battleship Missouri Overnight Encampment Program - O'ahu 

Battleship Missouri Memorial

63 Cowpens St, Honolulu, HI 96818

 

 Your overnight encampment aboard the Battleship Missouri generally begins upon your arrival, there will be an introduction of the staff, safety briefing including emergency procedures, distribution of the dog tags, souvenir pens, and activity booklets.

 

   The mission of the Encampment Program is to share the Battleship Missouri's story and place in history. We provide groups with a unique opportunity to tour the ship after hours, following the footsteps of the sailors who lived and worked onboard. As visitors explore the ship, they will participate in activities related to battleship traditions. Youth groups will also be given the opportunity to develop team building and leadership in a hands-on environment.
