Interested in attending Acting for Young People's Summer Camp? Here's a rundown of what to expect at Washington FAMILY Magazine's Best Summer Camp of 2015!

AFYP employs only the best Teaching Artists, and they are out in full force at camp. Our lead teachers are employed in a wide variety of theatre jobs throughout the year, ranging from professional work right here in the DC metro area to global tours. These teachers guide the campers' main acting experience and direct the play that campers will present on Friday (that's right, our campers put on a play in just one week!)

Camp is broken down into five age specific groups (ages 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13+). Campers will travel to different electives throughout the day with their group, learning from our fantastic elective teachers. Every student experiences Movement and Voice for the Stage on a daily basis. These topics are essential for actors of every age and are the foundations of creativity.

Campers have a few choices to make when it comes to electives, too: Improv or Musical Theatre? Acting for the Camera or Playwriting? These are special skills that campers will have the opportunity to explore at camp. If you can't decide which two to pick... you can always come back next week to try the others!
