RE: Museum Trip Solution?

In our future plans is a making overnight visits available to school
groups, scouts, and church groups at the Children's Art Museum. We have
security problems do to being tenants in a larger building that includes a
nightclub. Our area has a hallway that divides our Picture Book Library from
the Gallery/Art Studio. The hallway is a fire exit for the whole building
and cannot be locked off while the club is open.

I have to find a way to limit the overnights to school groups, scouts, and
church groups legally. As I told my boss parents think their children are
all little angles, teachers know better. I also find the scout leaders have
realistic expectations and pretty good control. I'll little leery of the
church groups, because they tend to have rose-colored glasses concerning
behavior and want 13 year olds to count as chaperones for 12 year olds. But
what I really fear is Museum Overnights becoming a birthday party
***shutter*** event.

Kimberly - now this is food for thought and a problem solution. Perhaps we
have parents that take the trip with us and then other parents that stay in
the building overnight with the kids. A pizza party tied in - Hmmmmmmm -
wheels are turning. Art game night. Maybe I could try this with my
elementary art club as
a trial run.
Thanks Roberta
