About NYFA Teen Camps

Each teen camp is built around a challenging and intensive curriculum that combines in-class instruction with faculty-supervised workshops where students immediately put to use the lessons they learn. We require that participants bring discipline, commitment, patience, and passion to explore, to work collaboratively with a team—to lead, and to problem-solve. These camps for teens encourage the students’ creative, physical, and organizational abilities. Learn more about NYFA’s Teen Camps.
