LEARNING THROUGH PLAY IN THE ARTS is what Metro Theater Company (MTC) Summer Camps are all about. Whether it's playing with sculpture, storytelling, and song at Creative Arts Camp, or learning how to audition for a play at Summer at SLU, MTC's professional teaching artists bring fun and growth through the arts to campers of all ages. As one of St. Louis' oldest and most respected theater companies, MTC brings the best in arts and theater to all of our camps.
