Hebrew for “home,” Bayit is an independent organization that gathers together a diverse community of Evanston, Chicago and Skokie children and families at a daily afterschool program that echoes the Jewish summer camp experience.

Limited enrollment for Fall 2015-16 is still available. Our pre-k through 2nd grade class is full Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. 

Look for us at the Evanston Farmer's Market on September 22!
