After School in the Park



Throughout the school year, the City of Rochester R-Center's After School in the Park Program provides an engaging and nurturing after school environment for city youth in grades K-6. Conveniently located at Cobb’s Hill Park, kids can take in an array of fun fitness, educational and arts activities, get help with homework, enjoy a free hot dinner and best of all, make lasting friendships.

This school year, the program will run from September through June on weekdays from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Cost is $55 per week for city youth; $45 per week for siblings. For just $85 per week, youth can receive all-day care through this program during the winter and spring school recesses. The program is also available to youth living outside the city. Interested non-city residents should call for pricing and availability.

  • School bus drop-off (Drop-off only. Must be arranged through the child's school by parents)
  • After school hours (2 to 6:30 p.m.)
  • Fitness and Arts Activities
  • Healthy Snacks and Hot Dinners
  • Homework Help
