An overnight adventure awaits our 7th graders as we stay two nights aboard USS Lexington, a mighty, record-setting World War II aircraft carrier-turned-museum located on Corpus Christi Bay. Our boys will hear stories from the ship’s illustrious past—covering topics like kamikaze and torpedo attacks, the manpower it takes to navigate an aircraft carrier, and being named the “Blue Ghost” by Tokyo Rose herself. The chapters of this living history lesson unfold over 11 different levels within the ship, giving curious minds a hands-on experience that reflects on the sacrifices made by a heroic generation, builds camaraderie, inspires a love of learning, and is just plain fun!

Leadership
