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.

Over the course of 12 weekends during the school year, campers survey the history of animation and the traditional animation pipeline, and learn the foundational techniques used in modeling, texturing, and animating both characters and environments. Courses focus on storytelling through the audiovisual medium of 3D animation, using industry-standard software and the latest generation Apple computers.

Each three-hour class helps students design, storyboard, model, and animate a small scene of their own design. Each week, kids explore a new topic within 3D animation to build new skills and original work. Upon successful completion of camp kids will have created their very own original short animated films, celebrated in a special screening for friends and family.
