4 Week Acting for Film Camp for Teens

While many teens possess a passion and talent for acting, making the step from stage to screen is a skill best learned through gaining actual experience in a professional setting. Offered at locations around the globe, the 4-Week Acting Summer Camp is a one-of-a-kind camp experience where students who love to act work with each other to elevate their talent and skills. Whether a student has experience acting or exploring a new interest, the camp is structured to give students the right amount of support.

Spend Your Summer Acting

Designed for teens on break for the summer, the 4-Week Acting Camp fits conveniently into campers’ summer schedules. Held at the Academy’s Los Angeles and New York City campuses alongside other exciting locales around the world, campers get the opportunity to act on camera while expanding their acting repertoire. Whether campers live in the city where the camp is held or are making the trip to camp, the chance to spend the summer acting in professional facilities or actual film studios is why many teens choose to spend their summers with NYFA.


Classes emphasize the practical application of acting technique as it applies to screen acting. Touching on such subjects as Stanislavski’s “System,” “the Method,” and “Meisner Technique” as starting points, students develop scenes and monologues for the camera. In conjunction with these classes, students participate in exercises aimed specifically at training the actor for the arduous requirements of acting on a film set.

Acting Classes

Campers at NYFA’s 4-Week Acting Camp take a wide range of classes covering both the foundational topics within acting and the craft of filmmaking to help students to better understand the different facets of film.

In addition, each camper get to sit in on a variety of special lectures that cover such wide-ranging topics as Shakespeare, Stage Combat, and Standup Comedy. Each camper who successfully completes the acting camp will leave with a New York Film Academy certificate, a professional headshot, and a digital reel with all of their filmed performances edited together.
