Discover the excitement of railroading at the Southeastern Railway Museum’s fun and enriching 5-day summer camp! Our theme for 2017 is “I’ve been working on the railroad”. Young railroaders will learn how exciting daily life on the railroad can be while participating in various reenacted railroad adventures and exploring over 50 historic trains. Each day, we will learn about a different railroad occupation, make a railroad craft, and do related railroad activities. We’ll even ride in a real caboose!
