Is there someone in your house that just started the 4th grade? If so, thanks to the Every Kid in a Park initiative, that fourth grader, plus everyone else in the family can get into any United States National Parks for FREE now through August 31, 2017.
You simply need to download the FREE National Parks Admission Pass here and print it out and show it at any national park, participating campground, wildlife refuge, tour, or more. You must have the pass on you to gain entrance.
Perhaps you already have a trip planned for an upcoming weekend or even for next summer vacation. Or, you’re thinking of putting together a camping trip–National Park campgrounds are usually pretty inexpensive anyway, but FREE is always better, especially if you want to stay a few nights.
I have a current 4th grader and we have a couple of trips planned for the upcoming year–a couple of times we’re visiting relatives in another state. I plan to check each state we’ll be in to see if there are any national parks nearby we can take advantage of.
Find out where to use your FREE National Parks Admission Pass is easy:
- Search for all the participating locations here.
- Simply select one of the four “plan your trip” options
- You’ll be directed to a place you search by state.
And if you happen to be a 4th grade teacher, you can print out a pass for each of your students.
