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.

Teen Acting Summer Camp Overview

Campers who enroll in NYFA’s 4-Week Acting for Film II Camp tend to be driven and passionate about acting, and seek to strengthen their skills and abilities as teen actors. The camp is structured so as to encourage their passion and keep them challenged and entertained, providing campers with plenty of time in front of the camera. Campers gain experience shooting scenes in class, and also have the chance to audition for roles in filmmaking students’ films. In addition to this practical experience, campers receive training in best practices for nailing an audition. Rigorous classes are supplemented by a series of special topics that may include Shakespeare, stage combat, dialects, and film craft.


Over the course of four weeks, campers attend and participate in the following:
• Acting for Film II
• Scene Study II
• Monologues
• Voice and Movement
• Improvisation
• Audition Technique II
• Acting for TV
• Cold Reading

At the end of the 4-Week Acting for Film II Camp, there is a final screening held for cast, crew members, family, and invited guests to see students’ hard work. Teens who successfully complete the 4-Week Acting for Film II Camp receive a New York Film Academy certificate and a copy of their work.
