May Membership Month

The Summer Semester is approaching and we want all new students (especially incoming 7th graders) to learn how to maximize their FREE membership during May Membership Month. To get started:

  1. Complete a Student Membership Application (SMA)

  2. Schedule a Family Tour

  3. Come Meet our Team & Maximize your Membership

  4. Leave ready to Sign-Up for Summer Programs on Wednesday, May 24th @ 2:00pm

Complete a Student Membership Application (SMA)

Your first step will be to complete a Student Membership Application (SMA) online. Student membership is FREE to teens in 7th-12th grade. Beginning Monday, May 1, 2023, current 6th graders (going into 7th grade in the Fall and at least 12 years old) can apply for a FREE membership. Once your application has been approved, students can begin enjoying programs on June 1, 2023. Students and their parents/guardians may apply for a membership online RIGHT HERE.

Schedule a Family Tour!

A family tour will provide a great opportunity for us to learn more about you, answer questions, and provide great tips to maximize your membership during your time at The Bridge. Plus, all families that take a tour will receive a FREE “welcome kit” that will include a Summer Program Magazine - your guide to upcoming summer programs. Family tours are strongly encouraged but not required. Tours last approximately 20-30 minutes. To schedule a tour call 708.532.0500 or send an email to [email protected]

Weekday Summer Programs

In June, July and August, we will offer a wide variety of FREE programs and hangout opportunities during the week for students. The Summer Program Magazine will be available beginning Friday, May 12th and online sign up will begin on Wednesday, May 24 at 2:00pm. All afterschool programs will require advance sign-up. Be ready once online sign up begins and watch this short tutorial on "How to Sign Up for Programs."

Friday Nights

Our ever popular Friday Night events take place every other Friday Night from 7:30-10:30pm. Friday Nights include fun themes, games, live music, karaoke, outdoor activities (weather permitting) and free food samples from local restaurants. Advance sign-up is NOT required for Friday nights. Drop-in anytime during the night. Doors open at 7:30pm. Parents dropping off/picking up students should watch this video for Parking Lot Best Practices.
