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.

Learn Acting By Acting

Held over the summer at many enticing locations around the world, this camp teaches essential acting techniques and puts them into practice through filmed scenes and monologues. Digital video cameras are used during classes to provide students with real experience performing under on-set pressures. Many of our one-week students get “bitten by the acting bug” during our camp and decide to continue their studies in our longer acting camps and beyond. For many, our 1-Week Acting for Film camp is the beginning of a lifelong passion.

Campers at the Academy’s 1-Week Acting for Film Camp take a variety of acting classes covering the following topics:
