Arts in Action Summer Camps for Ages 4-10

(children must be 4 by July 1, 2018)

Hannah Bock, Arts in Action Director 

No previous experience necessary! Enter a world of fun as grand and creative as your child’s imagination! 

Join our specially selected instructors as they embark on a journey filled with music, art, and movement. Sessions are based on a specific theme that takes your child to lands both near and far, and conclude with a performance that brings all of the learned elements together. Core instructors include specialists in music, creative movement, and visual arts, joined by guest performing artists from Hochstein's talented faculty and the Rochester community. 

Children are grouped by ages, with a maximum of 15 per group, and attend daily music, art, and movement classes—all designed around a general theme. A short daily rehearsal brings the groups together to prepare for a concluding performance each Friday. Mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks are provided and full-day campers must bring their own bag lunch.

A limited number of full scholarships are available for those who qualify, based on income. Please call (585) 454-4596 for more information.


All three camp sessions run from 9:00 am-3:30 pm, but students have the option to sign up for just a half-day session from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. An extended day option (M-F from 8:00-9:00 am for $30 and/or M-Th from 3:30-5:30 pm for $45) is also for full-day campers.
