About the Passport
Use this passport to get out and discover our city! We challenge you to visit six different sites in Colorado Springs - explore history, the natural world, and more. At each location, you will complete fun activities that will help you learn more about what makes that site special. While the passport was designed for children in grades 2nd through 5th, all ages are encouraged to work together and complete the activities. Once you have collected all six stamps, show your completed passport for a special prize!
