Overnight at the Museum – A Customized Overnight Lock-in for Your Troop or Pack!

From Cub Scouts to Daisies to Cadettes, and everything in between, our customized Overnight Camp in adventure is a wonderful opportunity for Cub Packs and Girl Scout Troops of all ages! You can choose to do a Journey, a merit badge, belt loops, or service projects. Or, Just enjoy a fun-filled overnight of Boy Scout/Girl Scout activities, such as scavenger hunts, bonfire with s'mores, arts and crafts, Pinewood Derby, and movies! You sleep in the gallery and wake to a pancake breakfast and MORE fun activities.

An absolute bargain at just $50 per person (with $100 deposit and minimum of 15 people) and a GREAT way for troops and families to bond and have fun! (And this is a great event for little campers who are camping for the first time!) Boys, check out this flyer; and girls, check out this flyer for additional details.

Contact Shirley at sdelatorre@nssm.org to get on the list.

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 Shirley (Bruce’s assistant!) at sdelatorre@nssm.org
