Steamtown NHS offers two Junior Ranger programs - one for children ages 6-8, the other for ages 9-12 - that may enhance your visit! The programs are designed to be completed using Park resources during a site visit. Programs are available at the Visitor Center at no charge, and must be submitted to the Visitor Center attendant no later than 1 hour prior to Park closing.

Also, our Children's Discovery Center, open on select weekend days, offers two programs for children ages 5 to 10 featuring "hands-on" child-friendly learning and multimedia presentations. Click on the link above for more info.
NRHS has suspended the 2013 season of RailCamp.
Each summer, Steamtown NHS partners with the National Railway Historical Society to present RailCamp at the Park. This one-week summer program for high school students introduces them to modern railroading, historic preservation and operations, and interpretation of railroad history. Click to learn more about RailCamp or phone the NRHS at 813-632-2183.
