Hey fourth graders! See America’s natural wonders and historic sites for free.
A new and very cool federal initiative to get all 4th graders and their families to experience the places that are home to our country’s natural treasures, rich history, and vibrant culture FREE OF CHARGE!
The Every Kid in a Park pass is good for the 2015-2016 school year, until August 31, 2016. Information on obtaining the pass is available by clicking everykidinapark.gov. This pass provides free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more! Some places you can visit: National Parks, lakes, and monuments. You can make a half-day trip or a whole school vacation around out of these destinations.
A few things to know
- The pass will be encoded to your fourth grader specifically so you can't copy it and share it with friends.
- All fourth graders are eligible so all your kiddo's friends can get one for FREE, too.
- You need to print your pass and bring it with you when you visit. Electronic copies aren't accepted.
Pass perks include site seeing, hiking and camping. It can provide FREE field trips as well as FREE access to parks for their entire family!
Did you know that you own millions of acres of national parks, historic structures, cultural artifacts, ancient forests, snow-capped mountains, and clear blue lakes? Our public lands and waters belong to all Americans and are waiting for you to explore them!
The initiative is an joint effort among the National Park Service, Forest Service, Department of Education, Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Land Management, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. And we're super psyched for it.
