Waterpark Kansas City is home to Verrückt, the tallest water slide in the
world! Families enjoy shared experiences, such as an interconnected river system
that takes them through more than a mile of rapids, currents, and tidal waves.
Guests challenge towering water slides and a thrilling water coaster, then ride
the wave on the Boogie Bahn surf ride. Kids splash and play on 13 mini slides.

is a day camp for children who have completed grades 1-6. Held on the grounds of the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame in Bonner Springs, KS, the camp uses the 4-H curriculum. If campers are not already members of 4-H, they will become 4-H members and be paired with clubs. Campers can choose from an approved list of 4-H projects to take to the Wyandotte County Fair July 18-22 as part of the day camp.
This nine-week program is broken into two-week themed sessions: Outdoors & Nature, Plants & Animals, Healthy Living, and Science. One week is our own Fair Week when campers will learn what is involved in showing a project at the county fair.
Campers will learn about chickens with our on-site poultry house, horses through the “horseless horse” virtual program, gardening with the Wyandotte County Master Gardeners, bee safety, how to prepare healthy snacks, fishing, outdoor science, technology and so much more!
Don’t delay! Registration is capped at 50 children.
$180/week per camper. $25/week sibling discount. Each camper is registered for the entire nine-week program. One-third is due at time of registration, and remaining thirds will be auto payments on June 26 and July 17. No refunds if campers miss any days/weeks. Camp is closed on July 4.
The camp begins at 9 AM and concludes at 4 PM daily. Campers should arrive between 8-9 AM. Before and after care is available at a cost of $10 per child per day (7:30-8 AM and 4-5:30 PM).

If you’ve done a traditional 5K, you know they can be a bit lackluster. But the BUBBLE RUN™ is like running through Willy Wonkas’ factory.
in white t-shirts, adults, kids and strollers run, walk, dance and play across
3 miles of absolute fun! Waves start every 3-5 minutes. Then, at each
kilometer, participants will run through the Foam Bogs where there is enough
colored foam to cover you from head to toe!
Bubble-teers and charity partners will also be there to help make sure you get your share of the frothy goodness. Each of the four Foam Bogs are represented by different colored foam.
