The Young Americans Performing Arts Summer Camp takes place over five days – four days of fast-paced rehearsal leading into an unrivaled, fully-staged performance. Our unique teaching style provides an encouraging environment for students to realize their potential and achieve the seemingly impossible goal of producing a performance in under a week. With 40 diverse, international cast members, our team is able to reach every student to reveal their best qualities as performers and as people. DO NOT miss out on this opportunity!

Week one and week four feature our Take the Stage camp! As a participant in this camp, your student will learn a variety show featuring multiple genres and performance styles. There is definitely something for everyone to love during this camp week! This camp is best suited for students who enjoy all types of music and want to explore performing in different styles.

Week two and week three feature our Showstopper camp! As a participant in this camp, your student will delve even deeper and learn a variety show that is only offered in select camp locations. Each year, The Young Americans flies out a master teacher to create brand new material with the campers in this session. Previous master teachers have had experience on Broadway, the West End, and National Tours. This camp is great for all campers, but is especially suited for students who have previously attended camp and want a brand new experience!*

*First time campers are welcome!

Participants should bring a packed lunch for every meal break unless purchasing the meal plan.

A meal plan is available for purchase during registration for $33. The meal package covers a hot lunch for the first 4 days of camp as well as a boxed meal in between performances on Saturday (5 meals in total). This isn’t a typical boxed lunch. Each day features a delicious, kid-friendly offering. Last year’s meals included a burger bar, popcorn chicken bowls, taco bar, and homemade macaroni and cheese.

Campers should plan to come having eaten lunch on Saturday. A pizza party will be provided to all campers and will take place before the performance on Friday.

If your camper has special dietary needs, please send them with a packed dinner to eat between performances.

 

Be one of 3,000 families across the world opening their doors to this amazing experience! As a non-profit organization, we rely on families, like yours, to help house our casts on our various music outreach programs. Please consider opening your home. Host families have helped house over 3,000 Young Americans in 25 countries. It’s really one of the most rewarding aspects for the workshop participants and their families. You can volunteer during the registration process or CLICK HERE to apply without registering a student.

Families that host our cast members will receive $50 off per camper (in the immediate family). For example, if you have two kids attending camp, you would save $100. The discount will be applied as a refund once camp has begun. Unfortunately, we can not apply the discount before then.

What discounts are offered?

We offer two automatic discounts: Multi-event and multi-registrant.

 

If you register more than one student, you will receive $15 off per student registered. Any student registered for more than one week of camp will receive a 6.4% discount off of the total cost of camp.

How do I sign up for a scholarship?

You can sign up for a scholarship as part of the registration process! On the review page, it will ask if you wish to apply for a scholarship. You will be prompted to answer a few additional questions. Our scholarship team will review your responses and notify you a week before your workshop begins. 

Is it okay to miss part of the camp?

Yes! We understand your students are busy! When your student returns, let any Young American know, and they will be more than happy to catch them up on anything they missed.

Does my student need performing experience?

This workshop is designed to have something for everyone. If your student has never sung or danced before, we want to give them an opportunity to try something new in a safe space. However, if your student has a lot of performing experience, we would love to help them hone and improve your skills.

Is it okay to drop my student off before registration begins?

There will be no supervision for your child from The Young Americans until the beginning of registration at 9:00 AM.

What is your refund policy?

Your registration fee will be refunded (less any service charges) when you cancel at least 1 week prior to the camp start date. If you cancel within the 1 week prior to the start of camp, you will receive a 50% refund (less any service charges) of the total camp fee due. NO REFUNDS WILL BE AVAILABLE ONCE THE CAMP BEGINS. If you are unable to attend camp due to a medical or family emergency and need to cancel within one week of camp, please email summercamps@youngamericans.org to request refund information.

I have more questions!

Please feel free to email our team at summercamps@youngamericans.org and we’ll be happy to help you!
