4th Grade Webelos -- This One's For You!
The Department of the Interior has a program exclusively for 4th graders called Every Kid In A Park. Why only 4th graders? Because research shows that kids ages 9 to 11 are beginning to learn about the world around them. They’re open to new ideas, and they are likely to connect to nature and our history. Think about how our 4th grade Scouting program starts them really working on self sufficiency and a partnership with nature, the Outdoor Code and Leave No Trace. It's the perfect age!
No matter where you are in the US, you're within two hours of a participating park! How cool is THAT?! Visiting public lands is healthy and fun. Learn about your heritage, and connect with nature.
