Remember what it was like to be young with a BIG DREAM?

If your child loves singing, dancing, and acting, then a summer with CampYATC can take their passion to the next level!

Our virtual camp allows creative youths to join campers from around the world who share their passion for the arts. While it may look a little different this year since we can’t gather in person, we can still promise one of the most rewarding training experiences out there!

Our award winning programs focus on discovering and developing each individual student’s talents in ALL the areas of the performing arts across TV, Stage, and Film, both onstage and backstage!

Imagine learning how to act on camera, like for real! Or how to land your next big role in the school musical with one of our one on one vocal coachings and let's not forget the unforgettable feeling of mastering dance to make you a true triple threat!

No matter where in the world you live, this summer your child will discover and embrace their unique gifts and talents in a safe and supportive environment.

“Olivia found such a welcoming community at YATC last summer, and this entire school year she has been looking forward to another magical summer experienc —even going as far as to say “I wish I could live at camp.” The community you have built for LGBTQ+ kids like Olivia in the hills of Santa Cruz is a true testament to your skills and passion, and I can’t thank you enough for creating such an inviting space for my child.””


- Jenn W parent of LGBTQ+ 12 year old


Changing Lives Since 2001

Young Actors Theatre Camp has built a reputation as one of the premier summer film, acting, visual, and performing arts camps in the world.

Shawn Ryan and John Ainsworth founded Young Actors Theatre Camp back in 2001, bringing nearly 2 decades of experience they can now, for the first time ever, provide online to an exciting international audience.


"Imagine a camp where you have 150 best friends and everyone is an artist just like you. That's Young Actors' Theatre Camp", says camp director and cofounder Shawn Ryan.


Their inspiration for developing the program came from wishing that they had a camp of this nature when they were kids. When they moved to LA, the Bay Area parents complained there wasn’t a place to send their kids. They wanted to create a place where everyone could fit in and shine. Inspired, they developed the camp with a wish to give back to this generation of future performers 19 years ago.

Today, they are proud that thousands of students have come through their doors - many of whom have gone on to attend top performing arts schools and work in TV, film, national tours, and even Broadway! Knowing that they and their team are making a difference in students’ lives is the most rewarding experience of all.
