Find & Book Summer Activities in Chicagoland With Afterschoolz

I partnered with this brand in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

Now with most schools out for the summer, you may be scrambling to find summer activities for your kids to do. My kids have been out for about two weeks now and I cannot even tell you how many times I have heard “I’m bored” and times that by three for each of my kids. Below is my daughter laying on the floor mumbling how bored she is…

Afterschoolz is a Chicago-based website that offers a way to search for activities for children aged k-12. No more browsing various park district websites, company websites or calling around for schedules. I honestly have dreaded and then missed signing up for activities because it wasn’t easy. I love how Afterschoolz makes it so convenient to browse and sign up all from one place.

Here is a search I did for Lacrosse in our area:

There are so many nice search filters in Afterschoolz that finding activities in your area is super easy:

Features of Afterschoolz:

  • Wide range of activities available to browse – not just sports!
  • Search by age, gender, keyword, time and more so you are not wasting time on what isn’t right for your family.
  • Receive timely updates via email about new programs in your area. (New programs are constantly added that you won’t want to miss!)
  • Totally FREE! Yes, using Afterschoolz is totally free for parents.
  • Currently, Afterschoolz is available in areas of Chicago and its surrounding suburbs (including Naperville, Aurora, Wheaton, etc.) but they are in the process of expanding to more cities across the US. You can actually ask your favorite after school activity provider to register with Afterschoolz so everyone can check them out!

Honestly, I can’t find a reason not to use Afterschoolz. It has really surprised me with how easy it is to use and the variety of activities available. I found classes on cooking, sports, crafts, tech and more.

Kids bored when visiting grandparents?

I see Afterschoolz especially coming in handy when my kids are visiting their grandparents. Now I can sign up my kids for activities near them so my parents don’t have to hear “I’m bored.” Without Afterschoolz, I would have to call places in their area or search various websites, Afterschoolz allows me to search park district programs, private classes and so forth all in one place!

I am all about convenience and love that Afterschoolz doesn’t charge either for this service! Afterschoolz is basically like a good friend who has already done all the research in your area and can recommend whatever you are interested in.

Whether you are ready to book something now for your kids or you just want to get a feel for what’s out there, Afterschoolz really is a one-stop shop for kid activities!
