Every Kid Outdoors FREE Programs for 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grades
Whether your students are in class or learning from home, we can enhance their educational experience and support your curriculum with an awesome program! For more than 30 years, school groups from New Jersey and neighboring states have enjoyed learning about coastal ecosystems with New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium (NJSGC) at Sandy Hook, a unit of Gateway National Recreation Area. NJSGC is proud to partner with the National Park Service and Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy to offer FREE programs to 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022.
As part of the Every Kid Outdoors initiative, 3rd, 4th & 5th graders (along with their families and teachers) are encouraged to visit national parks to experience the natural wonders and cultural history that can be found there. NJSGC headquarters has long been located at Sandy Hook, bringing this unique national park experience to tens of thousands of students since 1976.
Educators with 3rd, 4th or 5th grade students interested in participating in the Every Kid Outdoors program through NJSGC can choose from 3 remote synchronous learning programs or 1 in-person field trip at Sandy Hook, all provide FREE of charge and led by NJSGC Educators.
