Starting in October, one Friday night a month from 6:30-8:00PM, we will be offering a children’s program for 8-12 year olds. With the exception of 3 evenings, this will be a separate event from the normal general meeting held the second Friday of the month. Our list of topics and activities are

All children must have a membership to the club for insurance purposes. Family memberships cost $25. We will be charging a fee of $30 for the program, to cover the cost of materials. The children can expect to take home those projects they work on at the club
Enrollment in the program will be limited to 8 children, with one - two adult instructors. Parents or guardians can drop off their children or stay and join in the fun.
We will be accepting children from the ages of 8-12 years of age. Enrollments will be accepted until the course is full. Since the program will not change much from year to year, each child should only attend once.
