Our friendly staff are standing by to answer any and all questions you might have about YATC. Here are a few of the most commonly asked:
Q: At Overnight Camp, what are the sleeping arrangements like?
A: Students are grouped by age and gender into cabins of 11 students for every one counselor. Your counselor will stay in the cabin with you and take you to all your classes. We admit between 100-150 students to our programs and have anywhere between 30-50 full-time staff members. You and your cabin mates can decorate your cabin and we suggest bringing comfy bedding from home to make your bunk the most plush!
Q: I’ve never been to an overnight camp before, is this for me?
A: This is maybe the BEST first overnight camp experience. The staff and students are all one big family and by the end of camp we guarantee, you WON’T want to leave! It’s a life changing experience!
Q: What if I have little or no experience in the performing arts?
A: Not to worry! We have students of ALL levels. All we ask is that you come with the intention to learn about the performing arts. We have students who have never stepped on stage before and then we have students who go onto NYU and Julliard. ALL LEVELS are encouraged!
Q: Can I bring a friend?
A: We love it when first time campers come with a friend! ALL bunk requests are honored given that students are the same age group. We also have a referral program for all of our students who spread the word about the wonderful experience that is YATC! Also know that a lot of first timers come to camp not knowing anyone at all – but we’ll fix that on the first day, for sure!
Q: What happens at the 1-Day Workshop?
A: 1-Day Workshops are from 10:00 to 4:00 on Saturday and include 6 hours of instruction with a top casting director from one of your favorite shows. This is NOT a audition but rather a workshop to learn about the “Do’s and Don’ts” of casting and ALL about how to give your BEST audition whether it be for a hit show or your school play.
Q: Do you offer financial aid or payment plans?
A: Of course! Please call our offices to register and sign up for a payment plan that will be specifically tailored to your family‘s needs. We also have an EARN YOUR WAY TO CAMP Program that allows many students to attend YATC for FREE!
