Arts Camp @ RoCA features one of the region’s most comprehensive youth art programs. Under the guidance of professional teaching artists/educators and caring counselors, campers explore the arts in a supportive environment where creative expression, skill building, group cooperation, personal development, confidence and self-esteem are encouraged. RoCA campers feel a strong sense of accomplishment at the end of their session.

The RoCA campus invites campers to be immersed in art on 10 wooded acres and in fully equipped, air-conditioned art studios. RoCA’s large sparkling pool and open field provide plenty of healthy outdoor recreation. Our camp is proud to maintain a consistent 5:1 camper to counselor ratio for ages 5-9 and 7:1 for ages 10-14.

Arts Camp @ RoCA is a fun place where memories are made. Children are grouped by grade level, forging lasting relationships with their peers and counselors. Each season is based on a different theme and campers learn to express themselves through both visual and performing arts. Arts Camp @ RoCA is one of the area’s most sought after, unique, and praised day camps.
