Every Kid in A Park – Free Passes to US Parks for Fourth Graders
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until August 30, 2021
Hey do you have a fourth grader (or for 2021 at 5th grader?) in your family? Or can you borrow one? If so, start planning your trip to a National Park, Federal lands, or Waters. You’ve just got a free pass for a full year from the Every Kid in A Park program sponsored by the US Department of the Interior. Now, my family likes to visit national parks, monuments and forests but even I was surprised at list of government agencies taking park and the number of opportunities to get out and enjoy the US. So here is a list to get you excited. If you would like to see a description of each department’s offerings, click here to visit their dedicated page on the Every Kid In A Park website.
How Do You Get A Every Kid in a Park Pass?
Just go to the Every Kid in a Park website. There are instructions for parents and also teachers/leaders who wish to get passes for their class. Passes can be created by any adult who works with fourth graders for example, youth organizations, home school parents, camp directors or church leaders. The purpose of the program is to just get “kids in the parks.” And because someone has to drive, you get to go too!
