School Days Out Field Trips

When Districts close during the school year, we remain open to offer field trips and small group experiences. Our facility provides a gym, dance studio, field, playground, and multipurpose room for the children. Field trips vary from entertainment destinations to adventures in natural locations and are supervised by our experienced teachers.

Northwest Family Center also welcomes students who don’t attend other JCYS programs for School Days Out Field Trips!

If you have questions, please contact us at or call (847) 279-0900.
