Welcome to Parks4Kids! To commemorate and celebrate the National Park Centennial, the Outdoor Foundation and Outdoor Industry Association have launched this campaign to connect young people with parks.

Parks4Kids was created to provide micro grants to teachers, schools and nonprofits to connect our next generation with our nation’s parks. For only $10, you can give a kid a powerful park experience!
