It’s almost summer, which means it’s time to plan your summer vacation, before it’s too late. If you have a 4th Grader, this summer will be the perfect time to introduce them to one of many amazing national parks across the US.
Before you decide where you want to go, snuggle up with your 4th grader, and your laptop, and visit Every Kid in a Park to get their free pass. The pass admits all kids under 16 and up to 3 adults free!
Each April, our family sits down and talks about the summer ahead. Where will we go next? What do we want to see? What kind of wildlife do we hope to get a glimpse of on our trip?
We make a point each summer to visit one national park for that summer’s big camping trip. Everywhere we go, we see and learn something new, and take back with us amazing memories spent together of things we just can’t see and do at home.
Last year, we visited Glacier National Park. We took the Goint-to-the-Sun Road every day, and in our travels saw black bears and mountain goats, swam in an ice cold river, and a few of the many vast, blue lakes, like Lake Two Medicine and Lake McDonald. We visited the historic Glacier Park Lodge, and had a great tent camping experience all around.
This year, we have our sights on Crater Lake, and we’ve got our pass!
