AFYP in the Moment: Camp Electives

It's the most wonderful time of the year... CAMP!

One of the best parts of AFYP's Summer Camp is the opportunity for each student to select two special interest areas to learn more about. Each week, campers of all ages will choose between Playwriting or Acting for the Camera (to attend on Mondays and Wednesdays) and between Musical Theater or Improv (to attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays). 

Can't decide? Here's a little more info about what to expect in each!

Playwriting

MONDAY/WEDNESDAY OPTION

Dive headfirst into the process of creating characters and a story! Using fun techniques specifically designed for each of our five age groups, our Playwriting teachers (who are professional playwrights!) love to help each student unlock his or her creative potential. These student leave with a copy of what they worked on at the end of the week to share with friends and family.

Acting for the Camera

MONDAY/WEDNESDAY OPTION

Taught by camera acting veteran Kevin Murray, Acting for the Camera is a great introduction to the techniques and etiquette of the world of film acting. In addition to learning the industry lingo, campers will record a short commercial. These recordings will be available to each camper at the end of the week, to share with family and friends.

Musical Theater

TUESDAY/THURSDAY OPTION

Do you love to sing and dance? So do we! In Musical Theater, campers will learn a Broadway song and matching dance routine, often performed as part of their group's final presentation on Friday. Some past favorites have included hits such as "Friend Like Me" from Aladdin and "When I Grow Up" from Matilda.

Improv

TUESDAY/THURSDAY OPTION

Improv, the theater of games, is another fun-filled option! Campers will learn the basic rules of improvisation and work together to create hilarious stories and scenes with no script. Campers will usually share a favorite game they learned during Improv class as part of their group's final presentation on Friday.

 

Still can't decide which two to pick? You can always come back for a second week of camp!
