About Clubhouse Afterschool Program
School’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.
