As part of the nation’s commitment to protect our nation’s unique outdoor spaces and ensure that every American has the opportunity to visit and enjoy them, an multi-agency team launched the “Every Kid in a Park” program to provide all fourth grade students and their families with free admission to national parks and other federal lands and waters for a full year starting every September 1. The pass is valid from September 1 to August 31 of the following year and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) at more than 2,000 federally managed sites.
*You need to print your pass and bring it with you when you visit. Electronic copies aren't accepted.
Your pass has a unique code. That means you can't copy it and give it to friends. Encourage your friends to get their own pass if they're in the fourth grade.
