1937 Jamboree PosterJamboree Alumni: Upcoming Reunions at the North Star Museum

All Jamboree attendees from 1937 through 2017 are invited to attend a Jamboree Reunion to view a new exhibit on Jamborees and share memories from your experiences. Have you ever wondered what became of the members of your troop? Do you want to compare stories and memories with other Jamboree Scouts? Was your Jamboree experience unique, or the highlight of your Scouting career?

Join us at the North Star Museum (2640 7th Ave E in North St. Paul) to find the answers. Reunions will be held on Saturday, September 16, and Saturday, September 30--each from 1-4 pm--and you're invited to attend one or both! Light refreshments will be served. Admission is $5.00, or free for Museum members (memberships may be purchased at the door). Bring your friends! To share the invitation, click here.

Race in for Derby Night at the Museum

Save the date for some "grown up" Pinewood Derby fun! Join us for dessert and refreshments, music, a silent auction, Derby hat contest, prizes, Derby car races and more. "Get down and Derby" at the North Star Museum on Saturday, November 4, from 6:30-9:30 pm (this event is for adults 21 or older only). Friends, family, and neighbors welcome--don't miss this chance to race your own Derby car! For an invitation for you or to send to your friends, click here. To register for the event, go to

Join in the Fun Now!

The North Star Museum is growing by leaps and bounds and we are at a critical stage of growth. Dreams, ideas and wishes are coming to fruition. We are doing more, offering more and more people know about us. :That means we have had more demands for our resources. Without your help...our growth will come to a screeching halt.

These opportunities are FUN and enriching. We’d love to have you share your many talents with us! Contact Diana Foss, 651-748-2880 or

Club Bruce

“Club Bruce,” our NEW Jr. Museum Membership for kids is a big hit! Any child up to 11 years old can join, and it's just $35 a year.

Kids love the Bruce the Moose Adventure Pack with a reflective backpack, water bottle, moose plush, and compass/whistle/flashlight!

Parents love the membership benefits like discounts on merchandise in the gift shop, discounts on programs and meetings, and invitations to members only events!

BOTH kids and parents will love the quarterly newsletter, “Moose News”, that goes out to all Club Bruce members with information about moose and other Minnesota wildlife, the environment, events at the museum, milestones in Scouting history, etc. Click here to see the Spring issue.

And here’s something REALLY COOL. We are sharing a percentage of the proceeds from all Club Bruce memberships with the Moose Research Project of the Minnesota DNR. This is a team of researchers committed to saving our Minnesota moose and trying to discover why the Minnesota populations of moose are dropping.

Club Bruce is a great educational tool for parents, teachers and Scout leaders, and also makes a wonderful gift for that special kid or little Boy Scout or Girl Scout!

Be a part of the adventure! Join Club Bruce TODAY! Contact Diana (Bruce’s assistant!) at
