Looking for fun opportunities to discover your city with the kids this summer but don’t know where to begin? Kansas City’s Passport to Adventure program is sure to motivate you to get out and explore.
The free annual program runs from April through October. Fill in your passport by visiting area museums, historical sites, nature centers and more. At each site, search for answers to the “hunt” questions and receive a stamp. Prizes will be awarded for different stages of passport completion.
Olathe Bass Pro Shops will host a kickoff event April 8 from noon to 4 p.m. Visitors can pick up their KC’s Passport Booklet and browse more than a dozen science, nature and history booths.
Program sites will also have Passport Booklets available while supplies last. Participating locations include Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm Historic Site, Lakeside Nature Center, Legler Barn Museum, Ernie Miller Nature Center, Powell Gardens and Trailside Center.

Kansas City’s Passport to Adventure is sponsored by the Greater Kansas City Interpretive Site Coalition.
