Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is proud to announce another fun and exciting summer. The teen camps are geared towards high school aged students and will include instruction on all aspects of railroading including railroad terms, signals, how steam and diesel engines work, and the history of trains. There will also be a Blacksmithing demonstration, guest speakers, and more.  (Note: Teens attending both sessions will be eligible for a $50 discount.)  The junior camps are geared toward late elementary and middle school students and will include instruction on all aspects of railroading, riding trains, craft projects, and games.  

 

The End of Camp trip for teens will be on Saturday this year so that we can take a longer trip. Parents who wish to attend can purchase a discounted ticket for the trip.  These tickets must be purchased in advance for proper seating to be provided.
