KSDE is once again providing families with the opportunity to experience several Kansas attractions at no cost from late May through early August! Sunflower Summer is a collaborative effort among KSDE, KU's Center for Public Partnerships and Research (KU-CPPR), and Greenbush. Sunflower Summer 2022 will feature free access to 87 different venues, 15 FREE Greenbush Summer Camps, a FREE 3-Day Boy Scout Camp, and 5 Bonus Events across Kansas! 38 of the venues are "ticketed" meaning there is typically an admission fee, but that is covered for families through the Sunflower Summer program. Accessing these free events will be easy! There is an app for iPhone or Android that is nearly ready...when it is, just download the app, plan your day trips, and go! Visit the website that provides additional details and a preview of the exciting activities and opportunities. Sunflowersummer.org
