I wanted to remind you about the Every Kid in a Park program, particularly as we head into spring break and summer vacations (eventually!). Thanks to this program, every 4th grader and their family can receive a FREE annual pass to the National Parks! This offer is good for every child entering the fourth grade (or the fourth grade equivalent in home school).
This offer is also available to fourth-grade educators (e.g., camp director, teacher, religious group leader, homeschool teacher).
Here’s how it works:
- Head to everykidinapark.gov.
- Have your child answer the short questions that follow.
- You’ll be able to print a pass when you’re done – that’s it!
It’s important to note that you MUST bring the printed ticket with you to exchange for your annual pass. They cannot accept electronic copies.
From there, you may wish to plan your trip. The pass will get you into all National Parks and Waters – for FREE – for an entire year! Wow!
