Film, Media, and Performing Arts Programs
During NYFA’s year-round programs, teens and kids can pursue their interests in the film, media, and performing arts. Through projects, exercises, games, and activities, students develop new skills in filmmaking, acting for film, screenwriting, broadcast journalism, photography, musical theatre, game design, documentary filmmaking or 3D animation. In these programs, students learn what it means to be a visual and (or) performing artist and storyteller while forming lasting friendships, creating their own unique content, and establishing their unique artistic voice.
We currently offer summer camps, as well as weekend, after-school, and online classes held during the academic year. These full-time day camps and part-time weekend programs are offered at our campuses and locations at NYFA New York, Los Angeles, South Beach in Miami, FL, and Florence, NYFA Australia, as well as our satellite locations in Paris and the Harvard University Summer Program. As our level-one camps are designed for students with all creative backgrounds, no experience is required to attend. Our level-two camps, offered to those who graduate from level one camps, introduce additional skills and projects.
Teen Programs (Ages 14-17)
NYFA’s teen summer camps and workshops provide practical training in a number of disciplines within the film, media, and performing arts. Students work on exciting projects and learn the latest techniques and tools within their chosen creative field, studying under the direction and mentorship of our experienced faculty. NYFA’s programs are a great fit for teens who want to pursue an interest in the arts and create their own unique content.
The programs also enable students to strengthen their skills in collaboration, presentation, critique, and time management, which are vital for success in their high school years and higher education. For teens who wish to reside near campus, residential housing is available for the in-person summer camps.
Kids Programs (Ages 10-13)
In NYFA’s kids summer camps and workshops, students can explore their passion and enthusiasm for the visual and performing arts in a supportive, fun environment. Throughout these hands-on programs, students learn through games and structured learning, completing exciting projects under the guidance and supervision of our experienced faculty.
Our kids camps are a great opportunity for students to hone their natural talent and abilities, helping them learn the basics of visual storytelling and performance. Kids summer camps are held during the day only and housing is not currently offered.
NYFA attracts an extraordinarily diverse student body from all over the world, welcoming students with a range of skills and talents in the arts. Many of our camp alumni make lasting, global connections at NYFA, helping them build relationships and make new friends. Often, campers use the skills and knowledge from our programs to pursue their interests and goals in film, media, television, and entertainment.
Please note that the successes of any NYFA alumni are the result of their individual hard work, perseverance, talent and circumstances. New York Film Academy cannot guarantee that any future graduate will achieve similar success or secure a position in the industry.
