Instructions for non-members:

1. Set up your online account

Click here to visit our online registration portal, then follow the directions to create an account:

Once you have entered all the information for yourself and any additional family members (if applicable, by using the “Add Family Member” button), acknowledge the liability waiver and complete your account registration.

Add a payment card in advance to make the process even faster when you arrive at the Kroc Center; or, if you want to pay with cash when you arrive, you may close the registration when you reach this step.

2. Check the schedules

Use the Drop-In Recreation Guide or the Grand Rapids Kroc Center mobile app to find the available hours of the activities you’d like to enjoy during your visit. NOTE: Some activities such as Drop-In Art/Clay may require additional payment and have limited capacities.

3. Visit And Enjoy!

If each person purchasing a day pass already has a Kroc Center profile, you’ll just need to give your name(s) to the Welcome Desk attendant and complete payment. We may ask to confirm or update the information on your account, including your profile photo. Then, you’re welcome to enjoy all the Kroc has to offer for the rest of that day!

If you need to leave and return for any reason, just give your name at the Welcome Desk again when you return so our staff can confirm your purchase.
