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.

The New York Film Academy provides an environment unlike any other in which students can flourish as filmmakers. Our camps are designed for kids ages 10-13 and teens ages 14-17. The Academy offers a wide variety of film camps that actively prepare young aspiring filmmakers through intensive, hands-on education.

With locations in the United States, Europe, and Australia, students have the option to study in a number of different cities and destinations, providing our film students with incredible backdrops in which to shoot their original films, whether it be the streets of New York City; the beaches of South Beach, Florida and Sydney and Gold Coast, Australia; or the historical landmarks of Florence, Italy and Paris, France.

In addition to our numerous locations, the Academy has developed Film Camps for both kids and teens, with each camp organized to immerse young filmmakers in the craft of filmmaking. To learn more about our Film Camps, please click on the following links for either our Kids or Teen Film Camps.
