Getting kids to play outside more often is such an important mission, and we’re getting help from people and organizations all over Colorado. Everyone, from Colorado Parks and Wildlife to the Denver Public Library, is offering programs and activities. Best of all, most of them are free. Learn how you can get involved.
Want to take your kiddo to a state park but you’re on a budget? Colorado libraries are lending free "Check Out State Parks" passes and an activity backpack with binoculars, brochures and more. Find a participating library near you, check out the backpack with your library card, and start exploring.
Want a way to track your adventures across our amazing state and get rewarded? Thanks to CPW you can. Just visit a state park or hatchery and ask for a free passport. Then challenge yourself to visit parks and collect all of the stamps. Send a photo of your completed passport to collect your prize.
The Denver Public Library's Summer of Adventure program encourages kids from birth to 12th grade to READ, MAKE and EXPLORE. Kids will receive an Adventure Guide to record their activities, a free book, and a prize for completing all of the activities. Best of all, it’s free!
