Free Kent Children’s University Summer Challenge goes live on Monday 18 July

The challenge contains fun holiday activities for children to enjoy with their families.

Kent Children's University's annual Summer Challenge goes live for families on the evening of Monday 18 July 2022. It is a great way to keep children and their families entertained over the summer holiday so why not share the link with them before the end of term so they can download the activity pack.

Consisting of 24 activities that children and families can work on together at either no or low cost, children can choose to complete as many or as few activities as they want. They do not have to be part of Kent Children’s University to get involved.

Complete any number of the 24 activities, in any order, to fit in with a family's plans for the summer holiday. Completing all 24 activities is the challenge. These activities can be completed just for fun or to earn Learning Credits with Kent Children's University. Your families can find support materials on the KCU website, so do share the link in any newsletter or look out for posts on social media to retweet or share.

Families have until 17 September 2022 to complete these challenge activities, so get planning today.

Please share your ideas and challenge outcomes with us by hash-tagging #KCUChallenge on Social Media.

If children are part of Kent Children’s University, either through your school or subscribing directly through the Family Membership model, then a certain number of Learning Credits can be earned for each activity completed. One hour of Children’s University learning equals one Learning Credit.

The Learning Credits earned can then be used to count towards a national Children’s University award, and if they have achieved sufficient Credits they will be invited to graduate at a ceremony at one of the Kent-based universities.

Please visit the Kent Children's University website more information about the challenge or how to get involved with the scheme in the new academic year.
