Summer Railroad Camp

  • July 11 - July 15, 2016
  • July 25 - July 29, 2016
  • August 8 - August 12, 2016

Advanced Engineers - Ages 13-15  July 11-15, 2016

Our advanced camp is devoted to more sophisticated model railroading projects. The Advanced Engineers will also take a one-day field trip to several professional railroad-related sites outside the Green Bay area. This camp will go beyond any previous summer camp experience.

Engineers - Ages 8-12  July 25-29, 2016

Summer Camp Engineers will find a host of train-related activities waiting for them in camp based on this year’s theme: high-speed rail. The most popular of which is working on an HO-scale model railroad. While discussing high-speed rail, we’ll work in a little science and math, but will still keep everything fun and challenging. Check back here for registration beginning February 19, 2016.

Junior Engineers - Ages 5-7  August 8-12, 2016

This new camp is designed just for younger train engineers. The camp time each day is shorter, but we’ll pack plenty of activities into each day. The Junior Engineers camp will focus on the Union Pacific Big Boy locomotive. We’ll tell stories about it, measure it and do a few crafts related to this huge, legendary piece. Most of all, we’ll have fun.

Check back to register beginning February 19, 2016!
