The federal program, Every Kid In A Park, provides 4th graders and their families with a free park pass for the year.
Just have your fourth grader answer a few questions, print out the pass and bring it to a participating National Park.
And then all you’ll have to do is figure out which of the 2000 federal recreation sites you want to visit. Don’t worry you can buy an annual pass anytime for $80. Senior Citizens get a lifetime pass for $80, talk about a good deal.
So sign your 4 grader up for the Every Kid in A Park program and start exploring.
Your kid(s) may complain and say they don’t want to go, but let’s be honest, they never want to do anything you suggest. We’re sure they’ll love it and if they don’t at least the pass was free!
Go on an adventure with your family and open your children’s eyes to the great, big world just outside your doorstep.
