Free National Parks for Fourth AND Fifth Graders in 2021

posted by:

The pandemic wreaked havoc on so much for one good thing to come out of is that last year’s fourth-graders may have been unable to make full use of their Every Kid Outdoors Annual Fourth Grade Pass. Translation: 4th- and 5th-grade students can have free access to our National Parks now through August 31, 2021.

In case you need a refresher, Every Kid Outdoors is an initiative that allows fourth graders and their families to have free admission to National Parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges and waters for a full year in the 2020-2021 school year.

Signing up for a pass is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Go to the kid-friendly website Every Kid Outdoors and follow the instructions. For fifth-graders go to Access for 5th Graders
  2. Print an Every Kid Outdoors paper voucher. Vouchers for both 4th and 5th graders are good until Aug. 31. 2021.

Kids obviously don’t have to go alone: they can take their brothers and sisters and up to three adults. Kids can also tell their teacher to help their entire class get a voucher and plan a class trip outdoors. When you get your voucher, find activities and locations by using their online visitor map. Also, check out how to become a Junior Forest Ranger and Junior Snow Ranger.
