What is Kids Bowl Free?

Would you like your kids to exercise and burn calories during the Summer?

Fun fact: playing two-three games of bowling can burn 300 – 500 calories and the Kids Bowl Free Program can help your kids exercise all summer long – FOR FREE.

Kids Bowl Free is gearing up for its 2021 season and families around our area want to know how it works.

So, what’s “the deal”? If you have children between ages 3 – 15, they can bowl two games a day for FREE.

It’s quick and easy to sign up but, then what!?

Read on to get started and find out how Kids Bowl Free works and what to do next. 

How to Participate in Kids Bowl Free in West Michigan

Want to participate? Here’s what to expect:

Register for Kids Bowl Free at the participating Bowling Alley of your choice. See the list below for participating West Michigan locations.
