Bring your Child to our Work Day

The U.S. Coast Guard invites you to

Bring Your Child to OUR Work Day!


The U.S. Coast Guard is inviting families to Bring Your Children to OUR Work Day on Thursday, April 22.

Coast Guard units around the world will bring children (grades K-12) aboard cutters, planes, helicopters and more in a series of virtual field trips.

Think of it as a guided tour. Our active duty military members will welcome kids aboard for fun activities that highlight careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM).

Welcome to Bring Your Children to OUR Work Day!

Join the flight crew!

Meet the crew of an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, hop into the front seat of an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, and go for a ride! The Dolphin is the Coast Guard's primary helicopter, and we use it for search and rescue (SAR), law enforcement and many other missions. It normally carries a crew of four: pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer and rescue swimmer.
