April 2019


It's been an exciting time of new programming here at 3MP over the past several months - including adding our ninja arena in July, kicking off our 3rd Saturday Family Fun Days in January, and establishing a pilot student incentive program called Threewards early in 2019. 

As we sprint toward the end of the school year we now enter our busiest rental season, with 48 private events on our calendar between now and the middle of June.  When you add our regularly-scheduled open-to-the-public hours, that means a lot of cleaning, a lot of maintenance, and a lot of staffing.  But it also means a lot of opportunities to invest in young people.  We can't wait to greet the thousands of kids who will be walking through our doors over the next couple of months!
Inaugural Spring Break Family Event a Huge Hit!
      
Our first-ever Spring Break Family Fun Night took place on Saturday, April 2.  Although we weren't sure what to expect, none of us anticipated the turnout we experienced.  584 visitors spent the evening with us, enjoying all of our regular activities PLUS carnival games and inflatables.

Thank you to everyone who visited and celebrated Spring break in West Michigan with us.  If you're wondering whether or not we'll be doing this next year, the answer is a resounding yes!


Threewards Student Incentive Program

As part of our ongoing mission to invest in West Michigan young people, we've initiated a pilot program partnering with five local schools to provide free 3 Mile Project admission passes to be used to promote student achievement.  

We offer each school 50 admission passes after we've identified a sponsor willing to underwrite the cost of the passes.  If you'd like more information or if you'd like to sponsor a school, please contact us at info@3mp.org.  We look forward to expanding this program to more schools next fall!


April Family Fun Day

Our next 3rd Saturday Family Fun Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 20, from noon to 3pm.  Admission is $3 per person (ages 3 and under free).  

All of our regular activities are available for families to enjoy together, including sports courts, theaters, video games, gaga ball, crafts, table games, our ninja warrior course (ages 6 and above) and our skate park.  Our cafe is also open for cash sales.  Because this is a family event, no drop-off of unaccompanied minors is allowed.
