Chandler-Newberger Community Center offers comprehensive programs for infants through adults.
Chandler-Newberger Center manages a wide range of programs, held both at the Center and throughout the community in parks and public schools. In 2010, the Center had over 7,000 registered or drop-in participants in their programs.
Major programs include nine types of summer day camps for school-aged youth and preschoolers, after-school sports classes, girls’ youth basketball leagues, youth flag football leagues, preschool play groups, youth chess, adult/youth fencing, preschool development classes, youth gymnastics, adult/youth volleyball leagues, women’s basketball classes and more. Staff also oversees the citywide tennis program for youth and adults; tennis classes, leagues and private lessons are held in local parks and at Evanston Township High School.
We get help managing these programs from generous Evanston residents. Each year, about 150 Evanston residents volunteer for programs that are run by the Chandler-Newberger Center, such as referreeing at the March Madness tournament or acting as a chaperone at the Sports Camps' Great America trips.
