Kids Bowl for FREE Summer 2012


One of my favorite summer freebies is FREE bowling. We have done this for the past three summers and it’s been a great family-friendly activity.

There are several different options.

With AMF FREE Summer Bowling Program your children up to age 15 can bowl for FREE as many as two games per day. Additionally, you can choose to pay just $29.95 for the AMF 17 Plus Pass, which will get you two free games per day for up to four people ages 15 and older.

If you don’t have an AMF nearby, you can check out Kids Bowl Free. They have over 100 participating alleys around the United States and Canada that allow kids to enjoy two free games per day all summer long. Each alley sets its own parameters, so be sure to read the fine print.

Note that none of the Kids Bowl Free program covers bowling shoe rental. As I’ve said before, we bought cheap pairs for the kids and found that it more than paid for itself over the summer.

Do you know of a great FREE summer activity for kids? Send me an email and I will feature it here on KOAB.


  1. Never heard about this one. Thanks!

  2. Mara, this is just unbelievable. We just signed up at our local bowling alley. Do adults have to go with kids or can we go on our own with the adult pass? Such an amazing deal–we will be doing this a lot this summer I predict; thank you!!

  3. Where did you find a good deal on children’s bowling shoes?
