Camp Imagine 2020 – our 22nd year!

Camp Imagine is a full-day arts camp for children ages 7-12. Campers engage in visual arts activities in the morning and performing arts in the afternoon, which includes theater and dance. Due to Covid-19, singing is not being offered this year and has been replaced with collaborative art projects such as large sculptures and murals.

Other changes: Group size is now 7 instead of 12 campers. All students must wear a mask. Lunch and breaks will be offered outside but with social distancing (masks off to eat), weather permitting. (We’re setting up lawn ornaments under the shade trees to space out the campers during lunch) Each group is limited to 7 campers and each camper will be provided an art making station 6 ft. apart with supplies assigned for the week. Frequent cleaning and hand washing will be done throughout the day. Each group of 7 will have consistent interns and teachers to limit exposure and will not engage in activities with the other two groups of campers. After lunch, recess will consist of activities that can be done with social distancing like chalk drawing, bubbles, parachute games, frisbee, tossing games, beading and more. We will forego the normal end of week presentations and record these activities for parents to view. Camp will be different this year, but it will still be great!
