Railroading Merit Badge Weekend
November 11-13, 2016
Troop 1 will be taking to the rails November 11-13, 2016. We will be participating in the BSA Rail Camp sponsored by the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC which is just north of Charlotte on I-85. Scout troops from all over the Carolinas will be camping on the grounds of the museum and earning the railroading merit badge on Saturday afternoon by rotating through the various stations to complete each of the various requirements. During the morning hours you will have the opportunity to take a train ride and visit museum exhibits. For more information on the weekend plans go to http://www.nctrans.org/Special-Programs—Tours/Boy-Scout-Rail-Camp.aspx
The cost for this adventure will be $30.00 per person and includes the rail camp merit badge instruction, transportation, and camping accommodations. Scouts will be responsible for supplying and preparing all of their own meals (Friday Dinner – Sunday Breakfast) except for Saturday dinner which will be provided by the troop. The scout grills and stoves will be available for your use. This trip is a good opportunity for scouts to complete their First Class Cooking requirement.
The troop has reserved and paid for 15 spots. If we need to add additional spots (there is no guarantee they will be available as this event typically sells out) we will attempt to do. Please make every effort to register in timely manner so everyone that wants to attend will be able to do so. We will meet at the scout hut on Friday at 3:30 and plan to depart by 4:00. The arrival time back in Spartanburg on Sunday is expected about noon.
