    The Every Kid Outdoors 4th Grade Pass is free for U.S. 4th grade students and covers entrance and standard amenity fees. The pass is obtained by the student exchanging an Every Kid Outdoors pass voucher for the pass. This pass is valid for 12 months beginning September of the year that the student begins 4th grade. Note: All passes are valid September through August of the year that the student is in the 4th grade.

    There are approximately 4 million fourth graders (including home schooled and free choice students) in our nation. By targeting this age group, and those who live in underserved areas, over time we’ll ensure every child in the U.S., no matter where they live, has the chance to visit and enjoy their public lands and waters by the time s/he reaches 11 years of age.

    Research shows that children ages 9 to 11 are at a unique developmental stage in their learning where they begin to understand how the world around them works in more concrete ways. They are most likely to have positive attitudes towards nature and the environment and grow into the next generation of stewards, ready to support and advocate on behalf of these natural wonders.

    Many of our site locations currently offer fun and engaging educational activities at the fourth grade level (that align with standards).
