Announcing the 2024 Adventure Pass Grants Program

Parks California, in partnership with California State Parks, is excited to announce the second round of the Adventure Pass Grants Program. The 2024 Adventure Pass Grants Program will help more fourth graders and their families take advantage of the Adventure Pass, which recently tripled the number of park locations – expanding from 19 to 54 participating parks, providing more opportunities for learning, fun and sparking curiosity!

Studies indicate that access to parks and greenspace can lead to improvements in children’s physical well-being, social/emotional learning and academic outcomes, with children experiencing reduced stress and demonstrating more enthusiasm for school. Every child should have easy access to parks, and supporting California State Parks’ fourth grade Adventure Pass program is one way to help make that possible. 

Parks California is accepting submissions from nonprofit and community organizations that can provide transportation and meaningful, relevant outdoor experiences for fourth graders and their families until March 25, 2024. Details about the program’s grant eligibility, deadline and application process are available now.

To help with the application process, Parks California staff will host an informational webinar on February 29 at 9 a.m. to review the grant application process and answer questions.
