Our 1 week (5 days) Spring & Summer Camps have been designed by professional actors to immerse aspiring actors (and those with no experience) in the craft of acting for Film & TV. Through in-class instruction, students will receive ample experience acting on camera to establish a foundation as young actors.

The camps will cover the following areas:

  • Acting For Film Technique
  • Scene Study
  • Improvisations
  • Auditions for Commercials, Film & TV

Upon successful completion of the camp, students receive a Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts: Acting Camp Certificate of Completion.

Learn Acting By Acting

Students learn about essential acting techniques and skills, then put them into practice through scenes and auditions.

The studio is an absolute positive experience. The instructors are top notch and work with each student strengthening their skills and honing new ones. The administration staff is extremely helpful and approachable.
Josh Lambert - Attended VADA's Spring Break Camp March 2017

The acting camp at VADA was very informative and has changed the way I think about acting. The camp has a small number of students who all want to be there, making it a great experience to be a part of. Because of the small class size, you also get a lot of feedback on your own acting, which can help a lot.

Gabriel Salloum - Summer Break Teen Acting Camp

This was my first course on acting for film and without the course I would have 100% embarrassed myself in front of a Director or Casting Director. Highly useful information for a career in film or theatre. The material taught was 5 star!

Karina Russell - Summer Break Teen Acting Camp

My experience at VADA has been fantastic! I loved everything. The instructors were great, especially Andy Thompson! The school is a great place to go if you are just starting or already have experience.
