The Bridge is hosting a backyard bash and you are invited! Head out to “Your Happy Place” aka our Outdoor Patio and play classic backyard games like four square, bean bags, basketball, and more! Come play the viral game “What’s In The Box?” where you simply put your hand inside of a box and guess the object. On stage in the Big Room get ready to rock out with Valhalla, a student classic rock band with incredible talent. If you aren’t sold on the night just yet, White Castle will be sponsoring the food samples!

Advance sign-up is NOT required. Drop-in anytime Friday night during open hours 7:30 - 10:30 pm. Open to teens in 7th - 12th grade and be at least 12, but less than 19 years of age with a Bridge student membership. Not a member? Apply for a FREE student membership right here.

Important Attendance Policy:

Out of respect to our volunteers, please be sure you can attend the programs you sign up for. Confirmation calls or text messages are made 48-72 hours prior to every program. If you do not respond to our confirmation call within 24 hours of the program, a student on the waiting list will fill your spot. If a student is a "no show" for 2 or more programs, they will be automatically placed on the waiting list for other programs they have signed up for during that semester. 48 hours notice is required for all cancellations.
