Bridges are a fun way to extend a camper’s Berky experience and connect multiple sessions.

The pace of training and electives during a 5-day session is quite rigorous. When the weekend rolls around, the girls are ready to rest and recover. Our Bridge Program provides the necessary break. Bridge weekends include sleep-in mornings, extra electives, extended waterfront time, and a day trip to an exciting attraction like a high ropes course, zip-lining, or an adventure park.

New for 2024: Campers can choose between two different trips for every Bridge, except one. The options for each weekend are listed below.
