Youths & Teens

Our Youth & Teen programs offer the opportunity to build and learn new skills in a fun environment with friends.

Our youth and teen programs include creative arts and cooking, skills, hobbies and variety, performing arts, dance and music, and sports and athletics. Along with these programs, the Deerfield Park District offers After School Club for students in grades K-5. Designed for working parents, it’s a popular program to keep kids busy during the hours until Mom and Dad get home from work. After School Enrichment Programs are also offered at District 109 schools. These programs are enjoyed right after school and a variety of options of programs are available each day of the week.

For grades 1-8 we also offer School Days Out Trips for when your kids are off of school but you may not enjoy the same luxury.

R.E.C. 2.0 – Remote Enrichment Care

The Deerfield Park District understands the need for care for students of working parents. To help alleviate this stress and allow for safe, social interaction, we will be offering the R.E.C. 2.0 program for children enrolled in grades K-5 in District 109. Face masks will be required for all staff and children except for eating and outdoors while maintaining 6ft distance. Frequent handwashing and sanitizer use will take place throughout the day. Families will be required to complete a brief health screening questionnaire prior to dropping their child off each day. Each group will have a maximum of 10 students and two (2) staff. This program is intended for self-directed learners. R.E.C. staff will supervise students while they work remotely on their schoolwork in accordance with the remote learning schedule. Each student must supply their own laptop and headphones with a microphone each day, in addition to any other school supplies they may need. Each student will also need to bring a sack lunch and refillable water bottle daily. This program will not run on scheduled days off in accordance with the District 109 school calendar. This program is scheduled to run as long as District 109 is offering a hybrid school model.
