Share the Impact of Every Kid in a Park

The Every Kid in a Park program has already touched the lives of nearly 1 million fourth graders, connecting students with opportunities to play and get active in our parks and public lands. Unfortunately, the program may be discontinued after the 2017-18 school year.

To help advocate for the program, OAK is seeking testimonials from children, parents, caregivers and teachers. Know a child (or group of kids) who has participated in the 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 in a Park pass because…” postcard and send it to OAK!

The 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 everykidinapark.gov website and get your pass today!
