Kamloops Heritage Railway Society's objective is to educate, entertain and enrich. We are currently developing a number of programs to ensure we meet that objective.
Our Education Program will be primarily geared towards grades 2-7 but will have a flexible curriculum that can be adapted to any education level right through to university. We aim to develop the highest level of experiential learning for the youth of Kamloops and beyond.
We have converting a decommissioned passenger car into an historic railcar schoolroom. This car will be a static space used to deliver our education program and double as an amazing display for all visitors to our historic park.

We were one of the recipients of the Unique Heritage Infrastructure stream of the CERI grant, issued by Heritage BC and the Province of British Columbia.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.
This funding was for two projects in our heritage park:
1) Repurposing the decommissioned coach into a historic railcar classroom
2) Building a kiosk to welcome visitors into our historic park.
Although we received a grant for this project, that grant will not cover all the aspects of this project that are in development. If you would like to donate to the Education Program, click below:
As a non-profit we are always grateful for the generous support we receive. Any money donated will go directly to the creation and implementation of these programs.
