You and your family is invited to the After School Club Open House on Monday, May 23rd from 6pm – 8pm. Come see why this program is helping children grades K – 8th get better grades, learn important social skills, learn to roller skate and participate in other interactive games. Our children enjoy free play time both inside and outside our facility when it is not open to the public. Find out why our parents rave about the program and the kids race for the bus to get to the After School Club at Orbit Skate Center. We provide transportation from many CCSD 15 schools and drop off options are also available from any district. We even have home schooled children who love spending the afternoon with their friends. The After School Club is a community based not for profit program providing needed services to families in our area. Check out our flyer and we hope to see you and your family for the Open House! Enrollment is open anytime, space is limited and if you register before 6/1/16 you can save $25 off the annual family registration fee.
When I think of summer, I think of lazy days spent laying in a meadow looking up at the clouds and having picnics at the park. Summer meant loading up the carry basket and heading for the pool and the beach. Simple pleasures and family fun that made memories that have lasted a lifetime. Designing a summer camp program includes a lot of brainstorming on field trips and destinations. Think water fights, messy art projects, arts and crafts, roller skating and other sports, nature hikes, wagon rides and more. This is what we have planned for your child this summer! Just send a sack lunch and a drink and let’s go exploring!
Talking with our After School Club parents, they told us they wanted an affordable option for Summer Camp that included everything. They needed Early Care and After Care and tired of being charged extra and on top of camp fees and then extra for field trips, extra for this, extra for that. Talk about frustrating! I spent time researching area summer camps and found that registration was complicated and hard to figure out. Our pricing is the best that we can find for Summer Camp Palatine and our surrounding areas.
Orbit’s Kids Club Summer Camp designed to be simple and affordable. We are only taking 65 kids because we want a small ratio of campers to counsellors and our bus holds up to 65 kids and 7 staff. We like to get to know our kids, their likes and dislikes and each child is unique and different. Each of our 2 week sessions is filled with activities and our field trip days will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. Behind the rink we have a large green area that is part of the Salt Creek Park District. It is a great place for games and outdoor fun on days we aren’t on field trips to have picnics too! We are close to Twin Lakes with a huge playground and sand play area too!
Our Director, Ms. Judy Basich and her staff have been busy lining up field trips to wonderful places like Legoland, Chicago Museums and Thursdays (weather permitting) we will take on the challenge to visit as many water parks as possible in the Northwest Suburbs! We asked our After School Club kids where they would like to go on a field trip and we were met with a resounding “we want to help at Feed My Starving Children“. This is a 501(c)3 organization that pre-fills meal bags for starving children here in the United States as well as around the world. What wonderful children we have to know they want to spend part of their summer time helping others!
I hope you will think of us when you think about summer camp for your child grades K-6th, we’d love to have your family become part of ours!

Orbit Skate Center’s new After School Club for children grades K – 6th in Palatine IL has a new program beginning August 25th and open from 2-6pm daily every full day of Community Consolidated School District 15 is open.

We will be providing transportation from designated District 15 Schools. Our current list of pickup schools are: Winston, Lincoln, Pleasant Hill, Hunting Ridge and Marion Jordan. We will pick up at your child’s school when we receive registrations for the other D15 schools.
Children are welcome from any school and some parents have let us know they are going to carpool to the After School Club. As our program grows, we will be adding more buses. Home Schooled children are welcome and a great way to socialize and have fun with their peers.
