Q: I’m on an existing membership, do I get a discount?
A: Since our memberships are not based on a per-person cost, no. However, if the 7th grader is the only youth on a one adult household membership, you can downgrade to an adult and have the youth do the free membership. A student membership can also be switched to the free membership option during their 7th grade year.
