Sunflower Summer provides a wide variety of ways for families to get out, explore something new, and enjoy time together. Kansas families can visit museums, zoos, historic landmarks and more for free! The program will run through August 14, 2022.

Visit sunflowersummer.org to learn more about the program. An app is available for both iPhone and Android users. An adult will need to register their family members and include their county and school district. The Sunflower Summer Program is being funded by federal COVID-19 money to offer summer enrichment activities for Kansas students.

Each Kansas child pre-K-18 years of age, as well as students in 18-21-year-old programs, and up to two accompanying adults may access a ticket voucher to each of the participating attractions in the Sunflower Summer app. Once a location has been selected, tickets can be claimed within the app. When attendees are ready to enter, the ticket can be activated and presented to the ticket taker.

After the first use, the Sunflower Summer passport (in the app) will be stamped, and the ticket will no longer be accessible.

“This program [has] helped more than 43,100 students stay engaged in learning throughout the summer months,” said Kansas Commissioner of Education Dr. Randy Watson. “It provided families a chance to bond and afforded some families the opportunity to take a vacation they otherwise wouldn’t have had the resources for. It also stimulated travel and tourism within Kansas. We heard from families that the Sunflower Summer program introduced them to new activities they hadn’t previously tried, and venues noted that the program drew summer visitors from areas of the state they usually don’t see. We’re so pleased to be able to offer Sunflower Summer again this year.”

Funding for the Sunflower Summer program is limited, and tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis. More information, including a full list of participating venues and a frequently asked questions section, is available at www.sunflowersummer.org.
