The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Hall County Extension Office has all sorts of educational opportunities available to youth during the summer months.
Kids College offers partial and full day classes where extension staff and qualified volunteers teach a wide range of topics, including: photography, science, ceramics, sewing, baking, animal science, plants and outdoor adventures.
The classes are designed to teach youth valuable life skills by offering hands-on "learning by doing" opportunities that enhance their personal development.
