Every Kid in a Park Program

I briefly mentioned the Every Kid in a Park program in another post and thought it awesome enough to have its own post. There are plenty of RV’ing families out there who are homeschooling and could take advantage of this – if they aren’t already.

The Program

This is the greatest thing since sliced bread! No, really!

The U.S. Department of Interior has a program for fourth-grade students which allows access to all of America’s natural wonders and historic sites – for free! That includes National Parks. It not only allows the fourth grader in free but also other kids in the party under the age of sixteen and up to three adults! The pass does not cover camping fees, parking fees, tours, etc. Some local, city and state parks may accept the pass also.

Other agencies, such as the BLM, also participate in the Every Kid in a Park program.

How Do I Sign Up?

It’s incredibly easy to get the free pass. Just go to the Every Kid in a Park website and print your free pass. That’s all there is to it. You can read much more about the program on their site.

Here are the official rules for the program. From what I understand this program has been in place for a while now and renews for every school year.

Safe travels!
