My kids ADORE after care. In their school its run by the YMCA. Generally they do HW, then outside play, then arts and crafts they also turn the cafeteria into a HUGE playroom with diff. areas like building, games, science, arts/crafts, game area etc.
THey also have the chance to do extra curriculars (which do cost extra) at their school they offer: Martial Arts, Ceramics, Ballet, Computer, Team Sports (basketball last seasom, flag football this season) other years they've also done soccer and at one pt I rememeber hearing about cheerleading..
It gives them some fun with other kids time. My kids actually get mad at me if I get there tooo early. LOL
At a middle school I worked at they had drumming, dance, and drama. Some after schools also offer extra tutoring (I think theirs does but I've never really looked at it)
