What is the New York Film Academy's Filmmaking Camp Like?
First of all: fun!
While all the tutors and faculty staff in the New York Film Academy are there to guide students through a very full-on schedule, there's never a dull moment at the New York Film Academy summer camp.
In addition, since attendees share a common interest in filmmaking they can expect an enthusiastic environment in which everyone works together to get the most out of it. This collaborative spirit is especially useful since students will be working to complete their own films (four in total depending on camp length) throughout the course of the program in New York Film Academy.
Alongside filmmaking skills, the workshops are designed to develop students' social and organizational skills in order to solve problems- a vital asset for any career in the film industry that's emphasized in the New York Film Academy camp.
What Tuition Will Be Given?
Whether you're attending New York Film Academy's Summer Camp in Australia, NYC, or the Disney Studios in Florida, the New York Film Academy prides itself on offering second-to-none tuition to aspiring filmmakers.
Although the atmosphere- both during class and while on down time- is relaxed and friendly, students in the New York Film Academy can expect an intense crash course packed with one-on-one advice from industry experts. By the end of the program, students will have a working knowledge of the fundamentals of filmmaking as well as the equipment used to bring that knowledge to life.
What About Housing During the Camp?
Younger students (10-13 years of age) are invited to attend either the one and two week camps during the summer months, or the weekend beginner and intermediate workshops. The latter program takes place over twelve consecutive Saturdays. In both cases, accommodation will not be provided and parents need to arrange transport to and from the workshops.
Teens (14-17 years of age), however, will be provided housing for the duration of the camp at each of the seven campus locations. The accommodation set up, meal provisions and pricing will vary with each student.
Faculty staff is committed to providing a safe and positive learning environment, and in turn students are expected to conduct themselves with maturity. All New York Film Academy programs are strictly free of alcohol and narcotics, and staff will exercise the right to immediately expel any students who contravene these rules.

Is your child ready to embark on an adventure that's far away from the comforts of home? It's a question that is asked over and over again by concerned parents everywhere. By asking yourself some questions about your child, you can determine if they're ready for a fun few weeks at an overnight summer camp.

Does your child attend sleepovers with friends?
While some children have been attending slumber parties and spending weekend nights at various friends' houses since they were in first or second grade, others have only slept away from home once or twice, or not at all. If you answered yes and this is something your child does with no negative issues, that's the first step to knowing if he/she will be able to handle sleeping somewhere other than their own bed.
Is your child shy or withdrawn?
While shy children can certainly attend summer camp, it can be a more challenging adjustment, though overall it's an experience that that could help him/her come out of their shell. On the other hand, if your child expresses any sort of fear or major apprehension, overnight camp may not be something you want to explore just yet. If you child is shy, but still able to make friends and get along with others, summer camp can be a very positive experience for them.
Whose idea was it anyway?
When the topic of summer camp came up, who was it that expressed the interest? Did you present the idea to your child, or did he/she come to you first? If your child brought this idea to you and is excited about the notion, that's a great step toward knowing he/she will adjust quickly to their new surroundings. If you brought up the idea and your child is still hopping up and down, that's great too! The key here is that your child is showing genuine excitement and is looking forward to camp.
How does your child behave in school?
The school environment is structured, with a set of rules that must be followed for everyone's safety and well being and subsequent consequences for breaking those rules. Does your child do well following the rules at school? All camps have rules, much like a school, to keep everyone safe and keep their program running smoothly. The ability to follow rules ensures that your child will have a great time at camp.
Is your child fairly self sufficient?
At bed time, does your child brush his/her teeth? Does he/she get dressed without too much assistance? Overnight camp means your child will be spending several days and nights away from your reminders. They will need to be able to shower, practice good personal hygiene and be able to sleep comfortably in a bed other than their own.
Is your child socially active?
Most children that are socially comfortable with their peers will have little to no problems adjusting to overnight camp. Generally children that have no problem making new friends or getting along with a wide variety of peers will return from camp with plenty of smiles and stories to tell.
