Our 2014 Rail Camp is SOLD OUT!  Check back to be notified about our next Rail Camp so your troop doesn't miss out!

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.
