ArtsROC's innovative computer-based Minecraft programs allow children to explore their creativity while improving their technical skills. Students can improve their game play in our individual and group challenges on our internal ArtsROC Minecraft servers. We also incorporate education with LEGO bricks: students can tackle mini free-building challenges, participate in our large-scale building projects, create a mosaic, or learn the basics of stop-motion animation to create their own movie!
Each day consists of Minecraft and LEGO challenges, as well as activities interspersed with arts and crafts, outside play, and free-play time, in a Montessori-style setting. Our unique blend of computer and hands-on activities provides a dynamic atmosphere and keeps children interested and engaged. Students may use ArtsROC computers for Minecraft, or they may bring their own from home (no iPads, please!). We provide all the LEGO bricks your child could possibly need!
ArtsROC provides morning and afternoon snacks as well as a daily pizza lunch. Since students are invited to participate in outside play, please send weather-appropriate clothing. We maintain a 1:10 adult staff to student ratio in all of our camps, with additional staffing from high school students. Drop-off is from 8:45am to 9:00am, and pick-up is from 2:45pm to 3:00pm. After-care is available until 5:30pm. School-year programs are open to ages 5-14. Programs are $60 per day, $30 per half-day, $17.50 for after-care. Weekly rates are also available at $295 per week ($87.50 for after-care).

Have your own Minecraft account?
We encourage students to use their personal Minecraft Java Edition accounts while at our Minecraft programs. Students will be able to earn rewards on our Minecraft server that will apply to their account. This allows the students to continue their activities on our server even after the program session has ended.
Don't have an account? No problem! We have ArtsROC accounts that the students may use while they're at ArtsROC!
