MTC '24: You Don't Want To Miss This
Musical Theater + Camp = MTC
MTC combines the quality of a full musical theater program with the fun and excitement of Mountain Mist Day Camp in the great outdoors!

Register on the phone (203) 235.6386 or at the Downtown Meriden Y (110 W Main).
MTC is a full day summer camp program that costs just $45 a day for YMCA members. 
Please visit the Meriden YMCA website to learn about the registration and medical forms required to attend. All paperwork and medical forms must be submitted to the YMCA the Friday before a camp session begins.

Our Program
MTC (Musical Theater Camp) is MYT’s summer program located at Mountain Mist Day Camp (576 High Hill Rd, Meriden), where we put on a show in just two weeks! We rehearse and perform outdoors under the big MYTent - there is nothing like it!
5 productions. 3 shows. 1 awesome summer.
Due to higher enrollment numbers we are expanding to offer 2 Rising Star sessions. Both sessions will produce the same 30 minute musical, so sign up for the session that fits your summer schedule best!
We are also separating the Junior Program into 2 age ranges: Completed grades 4*-5 and 6-7. Both sessions will produce the same 60 minute musical. 4th graders must have participated in a 2023 MYT production to participate. First time MYT 4th graders must instead register for one of the Rising Star productions.

This just might be the BEST SUMMER EVER!

A True "Summer Theater Camp"
Don't spend your summer in an auditorium - kids already spend enough time in school! MTC rehearses in the fresh air and puts the 'summer' and 'camp' back in "Summer Theater Camp." We rehearse each morning under the shade of the MYTent. Between rehearsals, campers get to take part in camp activities, swim in the pool, play on the courts, and even use the water slide!
The MTC Staff
MTC is run by a mix of educators and MYT alumni who love to share their passion for theater with others. The MTC Staff has been working together at camp for over ten years and loves to see how each summer season continues to raise the bar. As educators first and theater directors second, we cater to children individually and help them develop their skills in small group and whole group settings.
