HYDE PARK — If Chicago teachers strike on Tuesday, Hyde Park kids will have some options for things to do.

Institutions are preparing to open their doors to Hyde Park public school students Tuesday if teachers go on strike, with plans to stay open throughout the strike.

The Kenwood School of Ballet will be offering a dance and art camp at KAM Isaiah Israel, 1100 E. Hyde Park Blvd. There will be dance classes and arts and crafts with a study hall and help from a Chicago Public Schools teacher every day of the strike.

The camp is $60 per day or $250 for the whole week and kids are asked to bring a sack lunch.

For more information, visit the school’s web site.

The Hyde Park Neighborhood Club, 5480 S. Kenwood Ave., will set up a makeshift school with classes for kids in kindergarten through high school from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day of the strike, with after school care options available until 6 p.m.

The program is $250 per week and $100 for the after school program for a week.

Kids are asked to bring a sack lunch and the center is asking parents to sign up on its website early because space is limited.

The YMCA at 6330 S. Stony Island Ave. is also hosting arts, sports and swimming from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. for kids age five to 12 during the strike.

Lunch and snacks are provided, but kids who want to swim are asked to bring a swimsuit and towel.

The program is $30 per day for members and $50 for non-members.

Space is limited and those who want to participate are encouraged to register early on the YMCA’s web site.

The Revival comedy club, 1160 E. 55th St., is holding a theater games camp for 20 kids during the strike from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with late pick-up options available until 5 p.m.

The camp includes ensemble and theater skill classes and a trip to the playground for $50 per day. The extended program until 5 p.m. is an extra $20 and includes an age-appropriate movie.

Students are asked to bring a sack lunch.

To register, visit the Revival’s web site.

CPS has also said that all school buildings will be open during the strike, but all classes, sports and after-school activities will be canceled.
