Free National Park Pass for All 4th Graders

Every Kid in a Park

Does your family need an excuse to take a vacation? The National Park Foundation’s Every Kid in a Park initiative is a perfect excuse to take the family on the ultimate excursion. This initiative allows all fourth graders and their families throughout the nation to trail-blaze any and every national park, for FREE through the 2017-2018 school year!

By visiting Every Kid in a Park government website students can create their own bucket list/diary to record their top preferred locations to visit. Personalizing their list allows students access to print their park pass and explore historic monuments, ancient forests, cultural artifacts, and parks with protected animals.

It is important the park pass is printed through the website because electronic copies are not accepted. Fourth graders, their family members under 16 and up to 3 adults are admitted into parks for free. Park passes expire August, 31, 2018. However, following the start of the new school year all new fourth graders are welcome to create their adventure diary.

With available travel guides and the latest news at your fingertips, planning an adventure is easy. If you’re concerned about where to stay, there’s no need to worry! Finding information on how to reserve a campsite or cabin is also available through the Every Kid in a Park website.

Help your kids learn to be safe online

Visit the following links with your children to learn more about being safe

on the internet and with social media.

To ensure safety online, it is recommended you put either K9 or Norton Online Family on your computers, and also use OpenDNS on your router. These three internet protection sites are excellent and they are all FREE If you need more information about how each of these tools work and which one would be best for your family, please go through the slides for the Internet Safety presentation. They cover each of these tools in great detail and explain what each tool can do and how it can be used.   This combination seems to work best in keeping the family safe. However, no internet filter is a substitute for taking time to talk to your children regularly and for teaching them how to protect themselves on the internet.
