RAILROADING SUMMER CAMP

Has your 9- through 13-year-old son or daughter ever wanted to work on the railroad? Are they fascinated by locomotives? If so, then have them spend the day with us on the Wilmington & Western for a fun day of railroading! They'll get hands-on experience with welding, metal cutting and working on the tracks. We'll give them a guided tour of our Marshallton Maintenance Shops and give them an up-close look at our steam locomotives. They'll also get to ride in one of our red cabooses and on a track car, where they'll sit just a few inches above the rails!

At the conclusion of the day, each camper will receive a t-shirt and certificate as an official railroad Gandy Dancer!

Lunch is included. Before-care (8:00 to 9:00 AM) and after-care (4:00 to 5:00 PM) are also available for an additional cost (see below).
