Let’s face it, all of us can’t send our kids to camp. It’s not always in our budget, and sometimes our kids just aren’t interested in going to camp. It could be day camp they don’t like, sleep away camp they don’t enjoy, or they just aren’t interested in the camp experience. Not every kid is cut out for camp. However, what’s left for parents to do with their kids for an entire summer? Well, free bowling for kids is one option!
Free bowling for kids
An amazing program that started quite a few years ago has been a topic on November Sunflower many times over the years. I learned about it from watching a news program one evening while I was cooking (I know, hard to believe, but it’s true, I was actually cooking.) I stopped what I was doing and ran to get a pad and pen. Who wouldn’t? Free bowling for the kids at a local place that got the kids active, but in air conditioning: no brainer for me! At the time my son was a little thing, and my daughter was crazy active.
KidsBowlFree offers two free games per registered kid EVERY DAY. The rules? Kids have to be 15 years of age, or younger, and they have to wear bowling shoes. Now, the issue with my children each year is there aren’t shoes that work at the rental area. They never have the size shoes my kids wear, so my local place allows my kids to wear their regular shoes. You have to work that out with your own facility.
If you can’t find a location near you for KidsBowlFree, try your local AMF. AMF locations offer a Summer Games Free Bowling program that allows registered kids free games every day! Not all AMF locations participate in this program, so be sure to ask your local one if it’s participating!
