Summer camps for 2021 are currently being planned for both in-person and online options. However, due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, NYFA will be unable to offer housing for in-person teen camps. Families will need to secure their own housing for campers and provide any necessary off-campus supervision, if traveling to a NYFA teen summer camp from another city, state or country. All after-school and weekend camps will be conducted online, until further notice. To view all camps and workshops offered, please click here.

While many kids and teens get the acting bug by participating in a school or community-staged play or musical, applying those acting skills to a recorded performance on screen is a whole other story.

After all, when acting for the camera, actors must not only learn to control each muscle and bodily reflex to convincingly convey an emotional state and deliver their lines, they must also be able to repeatedly give their best performance possible while being surrounded by countless on-set distractions.

At the Film Academy’s Acting Camps, aspiring actors are challenged through hands-on, intensive training to cultivate the skills and confidence to make the transition from stage to screen. While students obtain a strong foundation in the essentials of acting, they also learn how to apply their skills to delivering powerful and believable on-screen performances. Students even get the opportunity to collaborate with Filmmaking Camp students on original productions, giving them the chance to bring an original story to life.
