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.

2-Day Holiday Filmmaking Camps

With a focus on learning-by-doing, students explore camera, lighting, and post-production, and work collaboratively to shoot and edit a short scene. During this 2-day program, students will be tasked with directing, writing, lighting, framing, filming, and producing a film. These essential skills will empower students to more easily explore their passion for filmmaking going forward.

2-Day Holiday Acting for Film Camps

Students are introduced to the basics of acting for film, scene study, and audition technique, while rehearsing and filming a scene against the backdrop of Los Angeles or Battery Park in Manhattan. The immersive and active nature of our camp means that even in this short time, campers will develop new skills and come away with original work they can be proud of.
