Meccano and Super Camps build new partnership

Published on: 10th July 2015

Meccano has announced a new partnership with leading children’s holiday camp operator Super Camps.

Meccano-wordpressMeccano will feature as part of Super Camps’ A Passion for…. Invention course which will run in more than 50 venues throughout the summer months.

The course will engage small groups to build both independently and collectively and stretch their imaginations. Those signing up to the week long course will enjoy daily build sessions and receive a free take-home starter set.

Emma Eden, Meccano’s marketing manager, said: “Super Camps’ A Passion For… series offers the perfect opportunity to reach and engage with a core group of children who already know they will enjoy the challenge of Meccano. We will extend the programme in autumn to incorporate Meccano’s new personal robot Meccanoid G15 KS, which will introduce programming skills and further creative challenges.

“We are really excited about this opportunity and look forward to what we hope will be a long-lasting relationship with Super Camps.”

Guy Ker, Super Camps’ managing director, added: “It’s fantastic to have Meccano on board, giving us the chance to offer kids this timeless classic building and design opportunity as well as the very latest technology and gadgetry going forward.”
