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.
