Build A Model Camp LogoHosted by Pelikan Model Club
Presented by Family Time News

The focus of the Build a Model Camp will be to learn basic terms, programming, decorating and assembling a Level 1 “snap together” model. Activities will build upon the completion of a model and each camper will receive a certificate of completion. Parents are invited to attend and participate.  Pelikan Model Club talks about the history of model building, different skill levels required for different models, how to decorate your model and how to set up and show dioramas with your model.  Make your child’s next birthday party a unique experience by having it during model camp!
