When school is out, parents are always looking for fun summer activities for kids. It’s an added bonus if those activities are free (or almost free). We are totally lucky to have multiple programs that provide free bowling for kids during the summer.
Kids Bowl Free
Kids Bowl Free has been a great program that has been loved by parents near and far over the past few years, and we are glad to tell you that it is back again for 2015!
Visit KidsBowlFree.com and register your kid(s) on the website. Every family that registers can receive up to TWO FREE games of bowling PER DAY for up to six kids. This is totally legit and not a scam – over 8.2 million kids have participated in this program to date.
You can also purchase a Family Pass for $26,95 that will cover up to two older siblings or adults (4 adult family members) to also play two games each day. This is great if you want to enjoy bowling throughout the summer as well, but it is not required. You can also buy the family pass at any time, it doesn’t need to be when you register your kids for their free bowling.
So many families include bowling as one of their favorite summer activities for kids – it’s a great option for rainy days, super hot days or any day that the boredom bug sets in. And it won’t cost a fortune! Bowling is a great activity to keep kids moving (and to keep them out of trouble!) and this program is a fantastic value for families who are looking for some fun summer activities for kids to fill their days.
Age requirements and the dates that the program runs through vary by bowling alley, and there are a bunch of local Long Island bowling alleys that are participating. You can see all participating locations here and find your favorite bowling alley!
AMF Summer Games
AMF Bowling Centers are also having their own summer bowling program called Summer Games where kids and adults can bowl at very deep discounts. From May 18 through September 7, 2015, register to receive a Kid Pass (ages 15 and under) or an Adult Pass (ages 16 and older), each of which is good for 3 games of bowling plus shoe rental per day for the pass-holder. Pricing of the passes will vary by location and can only be used at the specific location.
