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.

This program will begin on August 24, 2020, and run 8:30 am-12:30 pm and 12:30-3:30 pm on days when school is in session. Face masks will be required for all staff and children except for eating and when outdoors while maintaining a 6-foot distance.
