An annual event from the N.C. Transportation Museum, and much beloved by participating
Boy Scout troops, our Boy Scout Rail Camp will be held Nov. 7-9, 2014.


Boy Scout troops will set up camp at 57 acre property Friday night. Saturday entails a scavenger hunt and scouts will dedicate the afternoon to earning their Railroading Merit Badge.  Troops will also tour the museum and take a train ride around the museum’s 57 acres of history.  

Troops will learn how a diesel-electric locomotive develops power, how to identify different types of railcars, the importance of railroad signals and railroad safety. Troops will also learn about modern railroad companies and planning a trip by rail.
 
Rail Camp is also a great opportunity for Boy Scouts to interact, camping alongside each other and working together to earn their Merit Badges. Flag raising and lowering ceremonies and a campfire program is also part of the fun.
