Clubhouse Afterschool Program

Registration for the 2021-22 School Year is now open! 


Clubhouse 2020-2021

The Clubhouse 2.0 Spring Semester is underway to complement District 97's current hybrid instructional model. The Clubhouse program offers childcare coverage from 12-6P daily and provides transportation from school to the Clubhouse center. On most days the staff walk the students to their center but on days with bad weather transportation will be provided. Once back at the facilities, participants eat lunch and continue with their remote e-learning program until 3pm. From 3-6pm the participants will be engaged with crafts, games, and other activities with the other kids!

About Clubhouse Afterschool Program

FinalSchool’s out, it’s time for fun! During The Clubhouse, children participate in a variety of structured and unstructured activities. Indoor and outdoor learning experiences feature fun recreational activities, such as group games and sporting activities, as well as time to relax, read, do homework and participate in quiet activities such as arts & crafts and table games. An after school snack will be provided each day.

The Clubhouse follows the District 97 calendar and meets on half days.  Full Days off of school are not included in the Clubhouse registration. If you are looking for child-care on those days, please sign up for our Passport to Adventure: School's Out Trips. 
Only Oak Park residents are eligible for this program. Students who attend other Oak Park schools are welcome to participate, but must secure their own transportation to the program site.
