PROGRAMS FOR ALL AGES
When registering online for a program with specific age or grade limits, please register each person separately. When registering for a family or all ages event, fill out the registration form for one member of your group, but be sure to include the total number attending in the “number of registrants” box. Hinsdale residents will be given priority. Non-residents will be allowed to join the program as space allows.
