Our afterschool program provides a warm, caring environment beyond school hours where your children have the opportunity to have an afterschool snack, complete homework, play with friends, and learn from community organizations. Arrangements can be made with Unit #4 to pick-up kids attending schools in the district.

Jimmy John's Youth Scholarship Join all the fun!

Because some residents are unable to participate in recreation programs due to economic hardship, the Champaign Park District offers scholarships to reduce certain fees and charges. Jimmy John’s Youth Scholarship Program applicants are not guaranteed fund availability, program registration or choice of program location. Early applications are given priority. Need is the primary criterion upon which scholarship applicants are considered. For more information, please visit our Financial Assistance page.
