YES Works...across the Nation

YES Summer Camps Bring Out the Stars

Summer. Nothing for teens to focus on but hangin' out. Weeks of empty time that lead teens into trouble.

YES Summer Camps offer teens summer fun with a twist: "At camp you'll make something positive and you'll learn to do it as a team." Coming together from across the nation, teens also learn lessons in problem-solving, making friends an working together. Camps take place on college campuses and YES Studio Sites.

Our Summer Camps are designed around subjects teens already want to learn about. That's one reason they work. Another is star-power. Entertainment stars, executives and producers work side-by-side with YES teens a Music Camps, TV/Film Camps, Sportscasting Camps, Animation Camps, etc. They also teach classes, inspire teens with their stories and sigh autographs. See why teens call YES Camps "once-in-a lifetime experiences"?


Many stars have taken time out to help YES reach teens. They include: Actress Dawn Lewis at TV/film Camps and Hip-hop stars Chuck D and Wyclef Jean at Music Camps, plus ABC/ESPN sportscaster Mike Tirico at Sportscasting Camp, just to name a few.
