The Young Americans - Summer Camp at WHS
Michigan Performing Arts Summer Day Camp
Western High School

August 4 - 8 

Registration Information
 
What can your students expect and how is it different from a workshop?
 
Our cast of 30+ Young Americans, ages 18-24, will be the instructors for every camp. Our instructors have experience teaching kids and adults in many languages to students all around the world.  The camps are an awesome opportunity for students to grow as people and performers. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join. 
 
Throughout the week, campers will spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group. We generally break kids up into elementary, middle, and high school groups. They will also be taking fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, and improv acting. 
 
On the fourth day of camp, we bring in an industry professional from our Alumni group who teach master classes that share the skills and experiences they have learned in their respective professions. The master teachers have had and still have careers as Broadway performers, major TV network hosts, casting directors, and many more related professions. 
 
The camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, learn an incredible 1-hour variety show, and take workshops in singing, dancing, and acting that you don’t want to miss out on!
 
At www.youngamericans.org/summercamps you can see videos, FAQ's, and cast information.  If you still have questions, feel free to send us an email at summercamp@youngamericans.org.
