ArtsROC | Kids Out and About Rochester

Rochester's online guide to everything for kids, teens, & families!


ArtsROC, a non-profit created in 2010, is dedicated to enriching the lives of children in the Greater Rochester area through after-school and summer enrichment programs. We are located in Pittsford, NY and offer programs in LEGO Education, Minecraft, music, language and basketball. Our instructors are passionate about teaching and have experience working with children of all skill levels. ArtsROC offers students the ability to discover their passion and then develop it!

After-School Program

Our LEGO Room is an open space where children, supported by qualified teachers, learn through hands-on and exploratory play. In our unique after-school program, we combine Lego building challenges and activities with homework time, music lessons, Spanish classes, and Minecraft challenges. Join us for just a couple of days, or come for all five!

Music Lessons

ArtsROC offers one-on-one instruction in voice, guitar, electric bass, drums, violin, and piano, taught by qualified Eastman graduates. Classes are available to students of all skill levels and are tailored to meet your unique interests, ability, and experience. 

Summer Minecraft/LEGO Camps

ArtsROC's innovative camp allows children to explore their creativity while improving their technical skills through the use of LEGOs, Minecraft and more! Each camp day consists of Minecraft and LEGO activities interspersed with arts and crafts and free-play (inside and out) in a Montessori-style setting. Our unique blend of computer and hands-on activities provides a dynamic atmosphere that fills each day with fun, one-of-a-kind learning experiences that spark the imagination! Specific activities include: learning to develop and run a Minecraft server by participating in group activities such as building challenges, game development, and scavenger hunts; working on mod servers, such as Pixelmon; participating in free-building challenges with LEGOs; and creating LEGO stop-motion animation films.


Summer Jr. NBA Basketball Skills Camp

ArtsROC’s Jr. NBA Basketball Skills Summer Camp is the most comprehensive basketball camp in the Rochester area. We offer three levels of training based on skill and age with a limit of 16 players per level. This is a hands-on training camp where players not only get trained by the best, they have the opportunity to interact with a different NBA player from the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks each week! A not-to-be-missed camp for the basketball lover!
