Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is proud to announce our fifth annual teen summer camp, first ever overnight camp, and a new camp for junior railroaders. The standard camp is 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, field trips, and guest speakers. The junior camp is geared toward late elementary and middle school students and will include instruction on all aspects of railroading, riding trains, craft projects, and games.  The traditional weekly day camp for teens age 12-17 will be available June 9-14.  New for this year we will be offering a full week Overnight Camp for teens age 12-17 available June 23-28 (with accommodations in the open sections of Pullman car "Clover Colony" and meals in Dining Car #3158.)   A summer camp for juniors age 7-11 will be offered on June 16-20 for half days during the week.

 

The End of Camp trip 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.
