The Every Kid Outdoors program has already touched the lives of millions of fourth graders, connecting students with opportunities to play and get active in our parks and public lands. 

To help ensure the program continues, OAK is seeking testimonials from children, parents, caregivers and teachers. Know a child (or group of kids) who has participated in the Every Kid Outdoors (formerly Every Kid in a Park) program?

Share the impact of the outdoor experience by encouraging youth participants to fill out the “I love my Every Kid Outdoors pass because…” postcard and send it to OAK!

The Every Kid Outdoors (formerly Every Kid in a Park) program allows fourth graders nationwide to obtain a pass for free entry for them and their families to more than 2,000 federally managed lands and waters nationwide for an entire year starting every September 1st. The interagency program invites children of all backgrounds to discover their public lands and all they offer, including opportunities to be active and spend time with friends and family. Current fourth graders can visit the website and get your pass today.
