PRE-COLLEGE ENRICHMENT THROUGH FILM AND ACTING
In June 2017, the New York Film Academy returns for its 17th consecutive summer to Walt Disney World® Resort, Florida. As in all our summer camps, each student writes, directs, shoots and edits his or her own short films.
SHOOT FILMS AT Walt Disney World® Resort
Students in the New York Film Academy summer camps at Walt Disney World® Resort, Florida have the extraordinary experience of filming at Walt Disney World® Resort, which may include the international countries of Epcot, street sets of Hollywood Studios, or other beautiful sets. Though they are shooting their films in Florida, students find that they may set their films on a street in Paris complete with the Eiffel Tower and French cafés, or Morocco, or more. In preparation for daily shoots, classes occur at the Bohemian Celebration Hotel.
The Academy has made arrangements for students to stay at the Bohemian Celebration Hotel, which is a luxury, full-service hotel. Housing includes a full meal plan. Students are not required to reside at the hotel in order to attend the camp. Families of commuting students must make daily transportation arrangements and/or provide a letter granting permission for the student to travel to and from campus unaccompanied by an adult.
For those students arriving by plane unaccompanied by an adult, NYFA staff will meet them at the Orlando International Airport baggage claim, if requested, and will transport students between the airport and the program campus. All transportation to and from the parks during the program will be provided by the New York Film Academy.
Although the schedule of our film camps is demanding, time is set aside for students to take advantage of the hotel amenities, including a swimming pool — so don’t forget your bathing suit! As part of the program, each student receives a Park Hopper Pass, which includes admission into the Magic Kingdom® Park, Epcot®, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park.
The safety and well being of our students is a top priority for our staff at all times. All New York Film Academy summer camps for teens are fully supervised programs. High school students are overseen by energetic, responsible, co-ed teaching and counseling staff. Counselors reside at the resort with non-commuting students.
Please note: Parents who wish to allow their children to leave the campus without supervision must submit a written authorization to the New York Film Academy.
Film shoots take place nearly every day in the very early morning. All film shoots are done in the presence of a teaching assistant.
Students have the option of residing at the Bohemian Celebration Hotel and will attend classes at the hotel’s boardrooms. Students may use the hotel’s various recreational facilities. Counselors and staff live in the hotel with the students.
Weekends are set aside for the students in our three-week camps to enjoy the Walt Disney World® Theme Parks. The students are driven to a predetermined park by the New York Film Academy staff and given a time and location at which to meet back for transportation back to the hotel. Students must adhere to the “buddy system” at all times in the park. No student is allowed to roam the parks alone.
For medical attention, staff will escort students to Celebration Hospital. We require all students submit their medical insurance information prior to the start of the camp.
