Railroading Merit Badge Camporee - April 25-27 in Connersville, IN
Feel the rumble of powerful diesels and the clickity – clack of the tracks as this operating railroad museum takes you on a 4-hour trip back in time to when railroad was king. Conductors & Engineers will guide Scouts through the Railroading Merit Badge requirements throughout the journey. It's an experience not to be missed.
The troop will be "riding the rails" as we venture off to the Blue Jacket District Camporee. Scouts will be given the unique opportunity to earn the Railroading Merit Badge at the Whitewater Valley Railroad. This district camporee should be another great time for all Scouts and Scouters.
