THE WEBB CENTER’S
ARTS FOR KIDS PROGRAM
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we implement a new registration process this year. In order to make registration fair and equitable we are going to run a lottery for camp sign-ups. Using a lottery system will eliminate the first-come, first-serve urgency of past registrations.

Camp Imagination is an annual two-week summer arts camp designed to stretch the imagination of children by introducing them to a variety of arts genres through an intensive hands-on program of activities that integrates technical, visual and performing arts mediums. Camp Imagination will produce two sessions, both two-weeks long, during the month of June 2021. A maximum of 150 campers, who are Arizona residents and entering first — twelfth grade in the Fall of 2021, will be able to participate; 75 campers per two-week session.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, campers, volunteers and staff will be asked to wear masks. Campers will be grouped into cohorts and will attend a predetermined schedule of classes where social distancing and minimal physical interaction can be monitored. Classes will include music, movement/dance, drama and visual arts designed to enliven their artistic spirit.
Camp Imagination will culminate in a live, public performance of “The Sound of Music,” starring all of the campers; either on stage as actors, singers and dancers or behind the scenes as the technical crew. To support Camp Imagination with a tax-deductible donation click here.
“Being a part of this amazing program for 10 years shaped who I am as a person and educator. Whether I was on stage or volunteering, Camp Imagination equipped me with skills I use in my classroom every day. Because of my experiences at camp along with the amazing staff and teaching artists, I am able to share the gift of music and theater with the next generation!”
EMMA SHANER • ELEMENTARY MUSIC TEACHER
Camp Imagination participants are grouped according to their grade and choose from a variety of art classes targeted to their skill levels. Each camper will participate in four classes, one Showtime class where they learn their part for the final musical production, and three elective classes.
Class offerings for first through third graders may include: “American Ninja Warrior,” drawing, acting, drumming, arts and crafts, and tumbling. Fourth through sixth graders have been offered: aerial circus, acting, puppetry, drumming, jewelry making, sewing and drawing as their choice of classes. Seventh through twelfth graders have chosen from: comedy/improvisation, aerial circus, culinary arts, stage makeup, DIY, film production, and technical theatre classes.
Students sixth grade and up are encouraged to audition for lead roles in the final production. Those rewarded with lead roles meet intensively with an acting and a singing coach to challenge them with advanced performance techniques and skills.
Twenty-seven teaching artists, recruited from local, state and nation-wide resources, teach 42 classes each day and provide quality arts opportunities for our campers.
