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.

Acting Camp Overview

In the 3-Week Acting for Film II Camp, students expand upon what they learned in previous NYFA acting for film camps, further enhancing their abilities when approaching a performance.

Advanced Acting for Teens: Classes

• Acting for Film II
• Scene Study II

In addition to the above classes, campers also take a series of special topics covering a wide range of subjects, which may include Shakespeare, stage combat, dialects, film craft, and more.

Short scenes and monologues are filmed during class, and campers can gain even more screen time by auditioning for parts in their fellow filmmaking students’ films . These films will be shown in final screenings for the cast, crew, family members, and invited guests.

Upon the successful completion of the 3-Week Acting for Film II Camp, students will receive a New York Film Academy certificate and a copy of their work.
