Each year we host scout groups and families for a truly unique experience—an overnight in the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum! Never considered a “campout” quite like this? I asked our scout families why they love our Bunking with the Butterflies overnights and came up with this top five list that shows why the Nature Museum is the best place for an unforgettable overnight experience.
Top 5 reasons scout families and leaders love Bunking with the Butterflies
1. Turtles and snakes and butterflies – oh, my!
Interact with live animals and see some rarely-seen pieces from our scientific collection.
2. Spend an unforgettable evening alongside your scouts.
Have fun, take part in activities, and make memories together that will last a lifetime.
3. We’ve got you.
Museum educators will facilitate the fun – from hands-on science activities and games, to exhibit exploration and even tasty treats. Check out our action-packed agenda here.
4. Experience a magical morning in the Judy Istock Butterfly Haven.
Watch the butterflies flutter about as they begin their day. Then, try your best butterfly yoga pose for a fun and relaxing start to your morning.
