Creative Arts Camp for Pre-K through 5th Grade: A playful summer returns! Creative Arts Camp is for campers entering Pre-K through 5th grades. Creative discovery is what it's all about as the arts disciplines blend together. Campers enjoy fun-filled days exploring drama, visual art, creative movement, and music with professional teaching artists. Children share highlights of their week each Friday afternoon for family and friends. Creative Arts Camp is a great place to make new friends, build self-confidence, and nurture imagination. Extended Care is available.
Grand Theater Camp for Middle and High School Students: Two, unique weeklong sessions at Grand Theater Camp cover the fundamentals of acting, devising new work, and improvisation! Each camp experience includes opportunities to create original work and explore scripted scenes. Metro Theater Company and Saint Louis University provide a welcoming community for young actors to grow - regardless of their previous experience level. This camp consists of ensemble building, master classes (like stage combat), and scene work. Lunch is provided daily by SLU Dining. There will be a performance that highlights what was explored throughout the week for family and friends on the last day of each session. Extended care is available.
