Connecticut


New London Naval Submarine Base
Groton, Connecticut

Public Affairs Office -- 860/694-3914

This is home to the U.S. Navy's Submarine School. They will host Scout groups. They have the Nautilus submarine open as a floating museum, which the kids love. They also did a special training demonstration for us where they taught the boys how to repair steam pipe with a "strongarm", then took us to the training room where they simulated a sub being attacked. We watched from the control room. That was fantastic. Great meals at the galley, super cheap cost.

U.S. Coast Guard Academy
New London, Connecticut

Public Affairs Office -- 860/444-8270

Across the river from the New London Naval Submarine Base. They have a tall masted ship, U.S.S. Eagle, which Scouts can tour, if it is not out at sea on a training mission. Tours of the campus.
