Much of the Park District’s programming is youth-oriented. There routinely is a waiting list for the highly-popular Once Upon a Time Preschool
. The District also offers birthday parties
, before- and after-school care
, days-off-of-school activities
, and winter and summer camps
that offer endless opportunities.
In addition to parent-child programs and other early childhood
options, the Park District has a varied youth athletics
program that focuses on fun as opposed to winning at all costs. The District oversees the Bloomingdale Beamers (gymnastics
), the Bloomingdale Barracudas
, the Youth Basketball Association
and the Bloomingdale Soccer Organization
. The BPD also works closely with the Bloomingdale Baseball & Softball Association
and the Bloomingdale Athletic Club
(football and cheer).
In the last few years, the District has expanded its tween/teen
offerings, which includes trips, Klub Friday Night Jr.
and more. The most comprehensive guide to youth programs at the Bloomingdale Park District is its seasonal brochure
