The Bakken Museum Clubhouse: School Day Enrichment Programs

In-Person Programming

Distance learning is hard. Let our educators help. The Bakken Museum Clubhouse is an in-person program for students to receive support for online learning, play games, and try out fun STEM activities during the week!

Students in grades 3 through 8 enrolled in remote learning programs with their school are invited to the museum for academic support, engaging science activities, and some good old (physically distanced) fun and games. The daily schedule will include flexibility and time to support students’ schoolwork combined with Bakken enrichment activities.


  • This program will be limited to 10 or fewer students working with 2 educators.
  • At-home monitoring for symptoms of illness by campers and all museum staff will be required.
  • Students and staff will be required to wear face masks.
  • Handwashing and hand sanitizer stations will be available in every space.
  • All activities have been modified to reduce contact between individuals.
