Teachers and adults who lead youth-serving organizations serving 4th graders (think homeschooling co-ops, camps, church groups, etc.) can also print FREE passes for your entire class plus download fun activity guides.

We aren’t the only ones who love these free passes…

We love this program! Fourth graders are at a wonderful age to utilize the national parks and become lifelong lovers of the outdoors and the parks.


We used this pass this past summer and had SO MUCH FUN!! We only drove 15 hours to the Grand Canyon, but it took us 6 days to get there because we hit everything between us and it. It saved us so much money too. I can’t wait for my daughter to hit 4th grade in a couple of years…😃


We used this last year with our 4th grader. We went to the Badlands, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Devils Tower Monument. The national parks are not free and require entrance fees, so the pass for the 4th grader is an excellent opportunity.

    We used ours this year for Glacier and Bryce Canyon National Parks. It was great and my 4th grader loved being able to have her own card.

    The National park service did a really great thing this past year. Because of the pandemic, many 4th graders were not able to use the pass for the last half and last summer of their 4th grade year, so they extended the pass to 5th graders for 2020-2021. We got to visit the National seashore during spring break and Rocky Mountains before school started back up. It’s truly a wonderful program.

    So this one pass I can use for all of my children or just the 4th grader? If I use it for other children should I print multiple?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      It works for your 4th grader plus all children under 16 and up to three adults! 😍

    Do you know if this works for Everglades Park???

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      If you are talking about Everglades National Park in Florida, yes it does!

      • Vasi

        Yes, thank you! My daughter has been asking to go so I guess is the perfect timing! 😀
