Now's your chance to participate in a unique scout overnight experience without the required minimum number of scouters to make it happen!

We've packed the evening with fun and engaging activities for your scouts. Check out our itinerary below:

November 6:

  • 6-6:45 PM: Scouts arrive and set up sleeping areas. Explore the museum after hours and participate in a fun scavenger hunt while we wait for all groups to arrive.
  • 6:45-9 PM: Participate in an animal program and a hands-on science program.
  • 9-10:30 PM: Enjoy a film in the Journey Theater!
  • 11-11:30 PM: Settle in for the night. Lights out at 11:30.

November 7:

  • 7-8:30 AM: Scouts wake up and pack up.
  • 8:30-9 AM: Enjoy breakfast in the grill.
  • All programs mentioned are included in the price.
  • Admission for one day is included with this overnight. Scouts may tour the museum more fully on November 6 prior to the start of the overnight or on November 7 prior to departure. 
  • Sunday breakfast is included; however, Saturday dinner is not included.

Groups with questions or seeking to register should contact Melissa Wersinger, Educational Programs and Tourism Manager, at 563-557-9545 x213 or Groups must pay a deposit of $100 to reserve their space with the remainder due by October 22. 

  • Cost is $50 per camper or adult 

Additional FAQ's:
  • Boys and girls will be in different sleeping areas - preferrably different buildings depending on number of participants.
  • Packs/troops do not need to register for the overnight as a group however, if they are registering as individuals, the scout will need to have an adult accompany them.
  • One adult can accompany other scouts (it does not need to be a leader). We will need to know who the adult will be accompanying the scout when they register.
  • No more than seven scouts per adult (Please make sure to check your council rules - they may require lesser ratio of scouts per adults).
  • We ask that unless siblings are in scouts and in the grades 2 - 6, that they not attend.
