We are excited to offer The Young Americans Performing Arts Summer Camp at Harbor Springs High School this year with Covid precautions in place. Our team has taken special care to reconfigure our program to keep campers, their families, and the staff safe. The camps will take place over five days; four days of rehearsal will lead up to two staged performances.
Our Young Americans are able to reach every student to reveal their best qualities as performers and people. Our unique teaching style provides an encouraging environment for students to realize their potential and achieve the seemingly impossible goal of producing a fully-staged performance in under a week – all while being masked and socially distant. Our diverse cast of Young Americans is able to reach every student to reveal their best qualities as performers and people.
The registration cost is $250 per week.
We are unable to offer our Broadway camp but look for it to return next year!

Please note the significant changes to this year’s performances. While we are making changes to adhere to Covid precautions, we still want to celebrate your camper’s success with staged performances before a live audience. We ask for your patience and understanding while we give your child a great camp experience while adhering to CDC, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and Health Department of Northwest Michigan recommendations.
