The Webb Center is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help with the 20th annual Camp Imagination summer arts camp. In addition to classes in a variety of performing, visual, technical and culinary arts, every camper will participate in a musical production. This year’s selection is “The Wizard of Oz.”
The Webb Center will produce two sessions of Camp Imagination. Session I is June 6 – 17 and Session II is June 20 – July 1. The two-week camp meets weekdays from 8:30 am – 1 pm and presents a public performance on the second Friday at 6 pm. Camp is open to students entering first through twelfth grades next school year. A maximum of 100 campers will participate in each session.
Volunteers assist with all of Camp’s daily operations, from overseeing campers to assisting teaching artists in the classroom. They do not need to have prior experience in the arts or with Camp, but must be physically able to care for active children and eager to participate in Camp activities. Duties will be assigned based on the volunteer’s preference, availability and staffing needs.
Camp Imagination volunteers are NOT required to disclose vaccination status and mask use, while encouraged, is optional. Camp Imagination mask requirements for campers, staff and volunteers will align with the WUSD’s policy at the time of camp. The CDC recommends that everyone who is eligible stay up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines, including people with weakened immune systems.
Volunteers have the opportunity to pre-register their children, grandchildren or other relative for Camp Imagination before registration is opened to the general public. Priority will be given to volunteers who are available for the full two-week session or at a minimum, one full week. Volunteers may apply by completing the application form found online at dewpac.org/volunteering. Paper copies are available at the Webb Center Box Office and the deadline to apply is Thursday, April 28.
Krysten Nunn, a recent Wickenburg transplant, volunteered for Camp Imagination last summer. She now serves as the Webb Center’s Patron & Digital Media Coordinator. “I am not shy about my love of Camp for the two weeks I volunteered,” exclaims Krysten. “It sounds corny, I know, but it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life so far. I love to see second and third graders from my group around town and we smile and high-five,” she explains. “I imagine being a full-time staff member at Camp this year is going to be quite different, but I’m sure it’s going to be equally as magical. Camp is simply THE BEST!.”
Applications are available here. Feel free to call our volunteer coordinator, Cheryl Lampron with any questions at 928.684.6624.
See you at Camp!!
