Much of the Park District's programming is youth-oriented. There routinely is a waiting list for the highly-popular Little Acorn Academy. 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).
