Your child can take you amazing places! With the pass, fourth graders can bring family and friends on adventures free for a full year.

Good news –  The Free 4th Grade National Park Pass 2023 – 2024 School Year offer is now available! Starting on September 1st, 2023, every fourth grader in the country will get an Every Kid in a Park pass that will be good for FREE admission to all of America’s National Parks & federal lands & waters.

One of the best things about the 4th Grader National Park Passes, are that they not only get your 4th graders in for free, but their families get in free too when visiting with them (since it’s typically a family/car admission to get in)! The pass will be good for a full year till August 31, 2024.

Logo EkoEvery Kid in a Park is geared towards inspiring and educating 4th grade students about the National Parks and Federal Lands & Waters around the country. The goal of this program is to show 4th grade students and their families the importance of protecting and preserving our natural wonders and historic treasures for many years to come. It’s important to keep kids visiting the parks, lands, and waters to develop a love of the great outdoors and amazing historic locations, to instill the desire for them to want to protect these special areas of our country.

  1. Visit the Every Kid in a Park Website with your 4th grader – Click on “Get My Pass”. Your 4th grader will then need to fill out an adventure diary. It’s basically just a quick little game about what they’ll see on their visit.
  2. Print off your Personalized Pass – Once your 4th grader completes the game, fill out your zip code and then you can print off his /her pass.
  3. Visit the website for information about National Parks & federal lands & waters near you. These are great sites to help you plan your trip.
  4. Head to the National Park or federal land of your choice for a visit & bring your printed pass. Your 4th grade student must be in the car with you in order to receive free admission for your family.
  5. Give the Pass to the Ranger on Duty to exchange for your child’s actual “Every Kid in a Park” pass. The ranger will ask if your 4th grader is in the car and if he/ she is in 4th grade. If you are visiting a park or federal land that does not require admission but does have a parking fee, you can also put your printed pass in the dashboard to count as the parking fee. Once you are able to exchange the printed pass for the Every Kid in a Park card, then you can put the card in the dashboard as payment for the parking fee.
