Prairies to Peaks Iron Horse Rail Summer Camp – June 13-15

Prairies to Peaks

Prairies to Peaks Iron Horse Rail Summer Camp is an educational camp for young people from the ages of 11 to 15 years of age. Its main purpose is to teach young people rail safety around highway/rail grade crossings, as well as along railroad rights-of-ways and around rail equipment and rail operations. In addition, it seeks to educate them to the many different crafts which are necessary to operate a railroad and strives to expose them to the opportunities available in the rail industry. Thus, hopefully educating and building the next generation of safety conscious railroad employees.
