Adventure CampusAdventure Campus FlexPass
Do you need child care on an occasional basis but not every day? Buy an Adventure Campus FlexPass, and use the program before or after school when you need it. Each pass entitles a child to attend up to 10 mornings or afternoons (or 5 combined mornings and afternoons). Drop-off is as early as 7am at Shabonee and Hickory Point and Winkelman schools, which have morning care. Pickup from after-school programs (Shabonee, Hickory Point, Willowbrook, Wescott and Winkelman) is until 6:30pm.

How does FlexPass work?

  • Visit the Leisure Center and register for the program.
  • Fill out a Student Information emergency form.
  • Call the Leisure Center 24 hours in advance to reserve a day.

Note:  Each child attending the program must have a pass (two-pass maximum per child per school year). The Park District cannot issue refunds for unused punches. The pass expires at the end of the school year in which it was purchased.

Kinder Campus2014-2015 Kinder Campus
The Northbrook Park District and School Districts #27 and #30 are pleased to offer Kinder Campus, a multifaceted enrichment experience for kindergarten students who want a longer school day. With a philosophy of learning through play and experience, this unique program combines fun activities with academic concepts. Kinder Campus works with the schools to reinforce their lessons, offering individual help as needed.

Each day provides activities that may not fit into a half day of school, such as art, music, sports, science, Spanish, outdoor play and field trips. Classes offer a balance of structured and unstructured activities, helping children learn to cooperate with others and develop self-esteem. This program follows the respective school districts’ calendars.
