Summer Camps – Working on the Railroad

Our fun-filled week-long summer camps are guaranteed to be full of play and learning! Each week, campers can look forward to a variety of activities including field trips, visits to the library, water play, and more. Summer camps are available for children in grades rising 1st – 4th.

Join us July 31 – August 4 for CAMP PLAY! week-long summer camp: “Working on the Railroad”

All aboard for this special week of camp! During this week-long summer camp, children will dive into the world of trains and railroads. They will engage in a unique project, constructing their very own model train display complete with beautiful landscaping, trees, water, wildlife, and, of course, trains! At the end of the camp, all the displays created by the campers will be interconnected and showcased at this year’s Lancaster County Fair.

Apart from the railroad-themed activities, campers will have plenty of time for play and exploration on our exhibit floor.

Themed activities and playtime will include exhibit floor time where public visitors may be present.
