Camp is the most amazing experience a teenager can have. Surrounded with like-minded teens, who are as passionate about the performing arts as you are, you will be encouraged and stretched to increase your skills in acting and in life.
It is like a 5 day creativity party with 50 of your closest friends (that you may haven’t met yet)
It’s 5 days immersed in the Safety Net culture that the AAA has become famous for, noone pays anyone out, and everyone creates the safe space so you can take enormous creative risks in:
A 2-3 hour extended impro where you get given a character to play and build. Past camps, kids have found themselves on an alien ship, a magical castle, and pirate ship and while we have not released its name yet, the winter camp impro is going to be a western!!!
Places are strictly limited and. Camp often fills quicker than we can imagine. So book this one quickly.
IMAGINE a party with your favourite people, where you laugh, do things you love, and learn new skills.
A place where industry professionals come and visit and share their skills and generously answer your questions over a meal.
A place where everyone treats everyone else as equals, and you can take the biggest creative risks you have ever taken.
Well that is what acting camp is like. There are no words, you have to come and experience it for yourself.

Every day is exciting on camp. An average days starts with morning warm up, then breakfast. Then we rotate sessions teaching cutting edge skills, breaking for lunch and afternoon tea. We then have free time (which is sometimes used for rehearsal) and then dinner. Finally we have our night session, which is a mix of movement, performance outcomes from workshops or our favorite...the Extended Impro - where you play a character for up to 3 hours and you go to bed buzzing ready to wake up do it again.
Skills on Camp:
Each camp has new skills. They will be fun, expand your knowledge and be taught by people who are passionate. This camp will cover:
Characters through voice and movement.
The Hour of Power ( devising a play in an hour) Fast Filmmaking - write, act, edit, your own film!
Breaking down a script
Creating Emotional Realism
Extended Impro: You will be sent a character and given secrets and missions to act out over 3 hrs. Mind Blowing! The SUMMER CAMP EXTENDED IMPRO is being created as you read this with more details coming soon.
Each camp we are inundated with specialists who want to come and teach on camp. So don't be surprised if the above is added to, as new coaches are booked. We can guarantee, whatever happens you will be expanded and inspired.
Give your child the gift of 5 days with like-minded, supportive and encouraging creatives all held by the AAA safety net philosophy.
