Calling All Kids: County Launches Summer Adventure Program

Kids are guaranteed to have fun and learn a little something through the county's "super summer passport" program.

The “super summer passport” program is designed for first through eighth grade students and gives families the opportunity to see many interesting sites around Carroll County to learn about our rich local history.

To achieve the “Celebrating America Summer Adventure Award” students must visit at least 12 of the 16 sites which include a library, a Main Street, a fire department, a county park and the Carroll County Farm Museum to name a few.
