Wednesday Evening Bowling at Bowlero

Young adults ages 13 and up, come join us at Bowlero for a fun night of bowling. Instructions will be provided while participants enjoy a fun and social evening with their peers. Bumpers and ramps are available when needed. Refining skills will be emphasized with our competitive bowlers. 

Some of our bowlers proceed to compete in Special Olympic Bowling.

Staff Involvement

Our "teams" are formed according to age and ability to maximize each participants' enjoyment of the activity. Our staff provides assistance to each individual as is needed. We neither foster nor encourage competition, but emphasize each participants' uniqueness and assist them to develop and improve their skills and abilities. Throughout the program, the staff encourages the development of social interaction.
