Every Kid Outdoors! Offers Free NPS Passes to 4th Graders
Written by Andrew-Rossi on October 14, 2019
Your 4th grader has a chance to take a free trip to any national park this year – all you have to do is print it out.
Every Kids Outdoors! is a campaign designed to get 4th graders and their families engaged with the country’s public lands. With a pass, fourth graders can bring family and friends to any national park, forest, seashore, and several other places entirely for free.
4th graders were specifically chosen because research shows that kids ages nine to 11 are beginning to learn about the world around them.
The pass is offered every year, so every kid can get a free pass to explore the country. All you need is to visit the website for Every Kid Outdoors and print a paper copy of the pass. Electronic versions will not be accepted.
Fourth grader educators can print paper passes for each of your students. This is open to anyone working with fourth graders in a youth organization – camp directors, home-school leaders, after-school leaders, or a religious group leaders.
Visit Every Kids Outdoors! at everykidoutdoors.gov to get your free pass.
