PAWS University 2020

We will be closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 as we get closer to June. At this point, we plan to have PAWS-U as scheduled.  We will be postponing registration until mid-April when we have a better sense of the situation. If, after consulting with state and local health officials, it is determined that social distancing practices should continue for an extended period of time, we will communicate any changes to the schedule as needed. Check back to the PAWS U website regularly for the latest updates.

PAWS University is Kearney’s premier curriculum-based summer camp for students. We offer a variety of Personal Achievement Workshops that are not only fun and engaging, but also educational.  Allow PAWS University to help combat “summer learning loss.”
