Free for 4th Graders: Every Kid in a Park


Calendar


Encouraging fourth graders to connect with America’s beautiful lands and natural treasures, the Every Kid in a Park initiative, a free program, is the perfect push to get kids outside and away from their screens! Created and sustained by the National Park Service, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, along with a variety of other agencies who support this program, getting involved is easy for both educators and children.

1. Interested fourth-grade teachers and students should click here to complete some activities and download your free park passes! Students, you’ll be asked to identify your interests to make your park visits the most beneficial experience they can be.

2. Next, plan a visit with a parent or guardian to any of the participating parks found throughout the United States. For many, this may include locating a place to stay and gathering the appropriate gear!

3. Now it’s time to hit the road or trail! Fourth graders print out your park passes; electronic passes are not accepted. All passes have a unique code and cannot be copied or shared with friends.

Ready to get started? Great! Registration opens September 1, 2017. For more information on this initiative, click here to see where the road may lead you!
