Every Kid in a Park

Hey fourth graders! In celebration of the National Park Service turning 100, come see America’s natural wonders and historic sites. The Every Kid in a Park program allows every fourth grader and their family to visit parks for free.

Get a voucher for a free park entrance pass at Bring the voucher with you to Denali and we will exchange it for your pass.

If you can't make it to Denali in person, then virtually visit us through our distance learning programs. Teachers can sign up for classes of any ages, but we have a special program for fourth graders called Find Your Park: Denali.

Finally, if you live in the Denali or Mat-Su Boroughs here in Alaska, tell your teachers to ask us about Denali Days! Teachers can invite one of our rangers to visit your classroom, where we'll talk about how the National Park Service protects America's special lands and history. Have your teacher contact us to learn more.


Denali has something for people of all ages.
