Before & After School Experience


Our B.A.S.E Motto

We believe after-school programs can help ensure a brighter future for children. We believe in the health and safety of children, and provide a safe haven during critical non-school hours. We believe that after-school programs make a difference in every child's life. We believe in creativity, imagination and the power of play. We believe that every child is an individual and should be treated as such. 

Our Staff

Our Camp counselors are First Aid, CPR, customer service and behavior management trained. The North Berwyn Park District conducts background checks on all staff.

B.A.S.E Discounts

About the Before & After School Experience

The Before and After School Program provides the perfect combination of recreational and educational activities for a well-balanced out-of-school experience. Children end each day excited about the broad range of engaging hands-on activities that allow them to develop their interests and skills, as well as having the opportunity to spend time on homework so that they can enjoy more quality time at home. The B.A.S.E program currently serves students enrolled in K-8th Grade that attend Berwyn North School District 98 Schools.

The program features:

  • Trained and Qualified Staff
  • Tutorial Advantages
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Interaction with Other Children
  • Outdoor Activities
  • Special Theme Activities
  • Afternoon Snack
  • Structured and Loose Play Environment
  • Quiet Free Time
