Greetings Chase County Families:
We are very excited to share with you an opportunity for your children and your family to experience over 80 Kansas attractions, educational activities, and fun events at no cost from May 28th through August 14th. “Sunflower Summer” is in its second year and is a program that was developed by the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) for families to have fun and experience as many of the participating Kansas locations as possible during the summer.
Please visit http://sunflowersummer.org/
to learn more about this year’s expanded programming options by watching the short video and reviewing the “Participating Locations” section of the page. Attractions, activities, and events from across Kansas include zoos, museums, historic landmarks, libraries, day camps, outdoor events, and more.
The updated App for iPhone and Android will be available to download by May 28th to your phone or tablet. Anyone who kept the app on their device from last summer does not need to download it again; instead, they will receive an electronic notice to simply update their app to the 2022 version. An adult will need to register their family members and include their county and school district. Then, families may begin planning their summer fun and acquiring free venue tickets as needed using the app and all of its features!
Thank you for your time and consideration, and we hope you have a great summer!
