Before & After School Program

The Lindenhurst Park District Before & After School Program provides a supervised recreational outlet for children entering Kindergarten through 6th grade.  Children will participate in a variety of engaging activities during their time with us which includes crafts, games, and sports, as well as have the option of a quiet space for homework or passive activities.

A per-year, $35 nonrefundable registration fee is required to participate in a session.  It is not required if you are only participating in a school day off or a camp.
