2023 Afterschool Adventures
Spend the school year with LA County Parks! This year, we’re taking our rebooted Every Body Plays program to bring you more activities and fun than ever before! In addition to our after school recreation program, this school year you can enjoy:

- Movies in the Park
In addition, we will continue to offer the following activities throughout the school year:
- Computer Lab & eSports
- Innovation Lab activities* (Select sites)
- Arts & Crafts
- Performing Arts & Music
During the school year, youth come to the parks not only for partaking in fun activities, but also to get assistance with their homework from our staff. This is not a homework completion program/activity, it is just to assist them in their homework.
Holiday and Cultural Events
Keep up with the holidays and base your activities around them! Be festive, be creative, be what’s in. Examples range from but are not limited to:
- Hispanic Heritage Month
- Spooky Season
- Harvest Festival
- Day of the Dead
- Holiday in the Park
- Lunar New Year
- Black History Month
Movies in the Park
Movies are a great pastime for many! With many genres and so many movies to choose from, the options are endless for movie day at the park!
Computer Lab & E Sports
Computer labs can allow for computer classes and activities and can even be used by youth for homework assistance.
Esports is a great pastime for many. Create a team and compete against other parks!
Arts & Crafts
Arts & Crafts comprise a whole host of activities that are related to making things with one’s own hands and skills. Get creative, get innovative, get artsy!
Engage in some fun & social activities to refresh the mind and body and to have a great time with your fellow peers. Actvities include handball, yoga, cross country and frisbee.
Sports are all forms of physical activities that contribute to physical fitness, mental wellbeing, and social interactions. Sports during the Every Body Plays program will be held as clinics and not so much as organized teams. Examples include basketball, volleyball, baseball, lacrosse and tennis.
Special Interest Classes
Instructor led classes that teach and enhance creative skills to your youth such as video production, poetry, hip-hop, stand up comedy, cooking and magic.

Each week of ESTEAM includes fun and educational activities from the following themes: Oceans, Becoming L.A., Paleontology, Engineering, Community Science, “E is for Environment” and Space!
