After School Enrichment - 11040111

The Lake Forest Parks and Recreation Department is aware of the need for more after school recreation options for children of working parents in Lake Forest and we want to help. We gained feedback from the community through a visioning session and surgery, to help us develop a one of a kind enrichment program for your children. Our after school recreation program will be a fun place to make new friends, play games, do crafts, participate in science homework, develop wood working projects, have homework time, and much more. We look forward to extending the day (and the play!) for working families in our community.
