Last Summer Super Merit Badge Weeks at the Museum

For the fourth summer in a row, the Museum has an antidote for Boy Scouts in fear of getting bitten by the dog days of summer. Once again there will be a week of merit badges in June, July, and August.

Get the word out about Super Merit Badge Weeks at the Museum. Encourage all you know to sign up early as space is limited. August is coming up fast and it's the last of the summer monthly sessions.

The base cost for each session remains $10 per youth, or $7 for Museum members. Some merit badges may carry a slightly higher cost due to material or lunch expenses. So, ask when you contact the Museum to reserve a spot. Here's a link to the schedule.

S'mores with Juliette

It's the "sing-a-long" edition of S'mores with Juliette featuring Girl Scout Songstress Carolyn Sandberg, Second Winds Alumnae member and Lifetime Girl Scout.

Join us for songs, s'mores, and sisterhood around the outdoor fire ring on Friday, July 25, 2014, 6:00-8:00 p.m. $6 per person admission, which includes food and materials.

RSVP to Stephanie at or 651-748-2880.

Put the August Pause That Refreshes on Your Calendar!

Renowned psychologist specializing in parenting and child behavior, Dr. David Walsh, is back on August 12 (Noon - 1:30 p.m.). Last year Dr. Walsh presented to a sell-out crowd, and we're delighted to welcome him again.

This time Dr. Walsh will discuss the concern of rising violence in our schools and what we can do to connect with kids, helping them to grow up health, happy and bright. Join us for a powerful Pause That Refreshes. This event is a must for parents, teachers, any anyone who works with children.

Please pre-register! Admission is $10 for a light lunch included with admission. RSVP by 2pm, August 11 to Stephanie at or 651-748-2880.

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 $35 per person 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!)

While all of the scheduled weekends for 2014 are full, contact Shirley at to get on the waiting list. 2015 weekend dates will be published after August 30, 2014.

Other details to answer any questions you might have: A $50 non-refundable deposit (which goes towards your total due) secures your date. There is a minimum of 10 people with 1 adult for every 5 kids.

Are You a New Cub or Boy Scout Leader?

The museum has just the course for you -- Boy Scout History for New Leaders. Scouting takes pride in it's 104-year history of teaching young boys and men its time-tested values. Come to the museum and discover how each generation carried on the tradition, and how you will make history. For more information, contact Claudia Nicholson at

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 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
