4th Graders Are FREE!
You might say, we rode on the coattails of our 4th grader this summer. Like we used the simple fact that he is entering 4th grade to visit not one, but two, national parks and take a joyride up to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado.
How did we do this for FREE?
All 4th graders are free with the 4th grade Every Kid in a Park pass.
The program is called Every Kid in a Park. And it’s super easy to help your 4th grader obtain their pass. You simply visit the website, help your child answer a few questions, and print a certificate to show at the gate of the participating park you are going to be visiting.
What entities participate in the Every Kid in a Park program?
