Don’t miss out on the most exciting & educational performing arts summer camp in the country! The Young Americans' Summer Camp Tour is making a stop in your community for 5 Days. Available to all students 3rd grade - College.

What can your students look forward to? This high-energy comprehensive performance summer camp covers everything from vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more. Learning a show in 5 days helps students learn to work together, to respect each other’s strengths, and to discover their own potential.

Classes, Self-Confidence, & Leadership: In addition, the students will take classes in the areas of voice, dance, songwriting, and performance (acting and improv).

After five days of intensive performance instruction, it’s show time! The Young Americans cast of 40 perform the first act as a gift to the campers and community. Then, the students perform the second act and showcase all the material they learned throughout the week. This show is jam packed with choral, jazz, contemporary, musical theater, rock n’ roll and more. Your students will be the ones in front singing, dancing, and performing the variety show and solos they’ve learned in just four days.

Interested in being a host family? You can save $50 per camper when you house a few of our cast members during the week of camp. Please email us at summercamp@youngamericans.org to get more information. You can also sign up during the following registration process.

About the camps:

This year we are excited to offer 4 weeks of camp for the first time! 

All 4 weeks feature the high-energy, variety-style camp our participants have come to love. The five days are filled with classes and workshops in vocal performance, professional dancing, audition skills, improv acting, and songwriting. On top of all of that, the campers learn an hour variety show that they perform at the end of the week. Each week features equal instruction time from our 35+ cast members who have teaching experience in the U.S., Europe, South Africa, China, and Japan. On Friday morning, we bring in a YA alumni to teach a master class for all the campers. Our alumni master teachers in the past have included Broadway stars, backup singers and dancers for major pop artists, and writers and directors for television and film, just to name a few. The only real difference between the camps is the focus of the variety show material that the campers are learning (see below).

Take the Stage - Week 1 and 3

On top of all of the wonderful classes and workshops listed above, campers will learn a variety show with songs and dances featuring current pop music, revamped oldies, movie soundtracks, and even Broadway musicals. There is definitely something for everyone to love during our Take the Stage week.

Best of Broadway - Week 2 and 4

Again, on top of all of the wonderful classes and workshops listed above, campers will learn songs and dances from many of our favorite Broadway classics to the most popular musicals on Broadway today. During this camp, we have our master teacher stay for an extra day (2 days total) to teach a number in the campers show. The best part, the master teacher has performed in that musical on Broadway! The Best of Broadway week is great for students who love Broadway or are looking to try it for the first time in an environment only The Young Americans can provide.

Pick-up, Drop-off, or Is your student in a conflicting activity? We realize families may need to drop-off students late, pick-up early, or have students participating in a conflicting activity. Please let a cast member know about your situation so that they can teach your student what they’ve missed during any portion of the event.

Bus Transportation: Bus transportation will be available to and from camp for the first 4 days and to camp on Day 5. Students will need to be picked up by their parents after the last show on Day 5. Bus pick-up and drop-off will be available in Petoskey, Boyne City, and Charlevoix. A more specific bus schedule and location will be emailed to sign-ups two weeks before camp. Prices vary per location. (See bus schedule below)

Meals: A $33 meal package is available for purchase. This package provides campers with lunch the first 4 days of camp and a dinner on day 4 before the evening show. No meals are provided on Day 5. Otherwise, participants should bring a sack lunch for every meal break. Also, there is a pizza party between the two shows on Day 5, you can sign up for the pizza party during the week of camp.

Show Tickets: Tickets will be sold for the finale show at the beginning and end of each camp day & 30 minutes prior to the performance. We want to stress the importance of purchasing tickets before the show day to ensure you have a seat. As a reminder, your student(s) that are in the summer camp do not need a ticket. The campers will have the opportunity to watch the YAs perform during one of the camp shows.
