Five Reasons Scout Families Love Bunking with the Butterflies

Created: 9/21/2018      Updated: 9/25/2018

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.
