Every Kid in a Park {FREE National Park Pass}

**Great news! This program is continuing through 2020**


Planning a family trip? You should! The National Park Service just announced a fabulous program called Every Kid in a Park where every 4th grader in America gets a FREE National Park Pass.

I was excited for two reasons: 1) I have two fourth graders this year! and 2) We already have some trips planned, and one is to Yellowstone, so this saves us quite a bit of money!

Family Road Trip | Free National Park Pass for 4th Graders

The National Park Pass gives the whole family FREE access to all national parks, lands, and waters through August 31, 2019. Update: Now good through August 31, 2020! When you visit a National Park, you can:

  • Learn history, culture, and science while exploring the great outdoors. Forests, mountains, lakes–you name it!
  • Time travel! See pictographs and petroglyphs, visit the birthplace of historic figures, and experience how kids from the past lived.
  • Engage and create the next generation of park visitors. Your kids will thank you!

Need some ideas on where to go? Sign up at nationalparks.org to get a FREE guide with 35 Parks adventures for kids.

Be sure to check out the Junior Rangers programs at the Parks you visit; my kids just love interacting with the park rangers, learning, and collecting stamps for their booklets.
