PAWS University Summer Reading Academy

PAWS is back! The University of Nebraska at Kearney is partnering with Kearney Public Schools (KPS) to bring you PAWS University, Kearney’s premier curriculum-based summer camp for students entering 1st-6th grades.

Join us on UNK's campus in the month of June for fun camps in art, science, Spanish, music and more!  As always, PAWS University is a mix-and-match adventure, allowing you to create an individualized learning path for your child. This year, we have extended the day to include library hour at 7:45 am and a late afternoon session from 3:00-5:00!  We look forward to a summer full of engaging and educational workshops.
Do you have a student who would benefit from additional reading instruction from a certified teacher this summer?  If so, check out PAWS University Reading Academy, a 4-week class that engages students through a balanced literacy approach of author studies, on-campus outings, and teacher-led instruction.
