Overnight at the Museum – Camping Adventure

Give ‘camping out’ a new spin with an overnight campout at the North Star Museum of Boy Scouting & Girl Scouting!

You bring your sleeping bag and a sense of adventure and we do the rest!

Our ‘camp counselors’ have the girls and boys busy, busy with all kinds of fun activities and crafts that include campfire with s’mores, songs, skits, Pinewood Derby track, a movie and more! Then it’s lights out to sleep in the gallery in sleeping bags and tents. IN the morning it’s more activities and crafts, a pancake breakfast and take home souvenirs!

This event can be customized to fit your Scouting unit's needs!

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.

While all of the scheduled weekends for 2014 are full, contact Shirley at sdelatorre@nssm.org to get on the waiting list.

Give to the MAX Day Can Be Any Day

You don't have to wait until next year to give to the Museum. Join other like-minded individuals who believe in our mission. Become a sustainer by giving as little as $10 per month. You can set it up your sustaining membership, or give a child a yearly membership to Club Bruce ($35). It's easy as indicating Club Bruce and the child's name and contact information in the designation area. Click here to go to the Museum page on the GiveMN.org website.

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
