About this camp


"I’ve waited my whole life to feel the happiness I felt for the two weeks at AMTA Musical Theatre Summer Camp". - Maeva Feitelson - Swizerland

Broadway & West End professionals will be teaching you at this intensive summer camp in beautiful Cornwallis, N.S (between Digby and Annapolis Royal). Choose from Dancing, Singing or Acting (or all three). Stay over night (12 & up) or visit our day camp (ages 7 & up). We also have an adult program. Perform in a musical showcase on stage at the end of the two weeks.

The Our Kids review of American Musical Theatre Academy Canadian Summer Camp

our take

The impetus for this camp is a delightfully simple one: Kenneth Avery-Clark, a theater professional, was visiting Cornwallis and thought, “What an amazing place this would be to spend two weeks with a bunch of like-minded kids and adults singing, dancing and acting every day!” He made it so, and, well, it was. The camp is a tip of a larger iceberg, namely that of the American Musical Theater Academy which runs a number of schools and locations. As such, this camp attracts campers from nearby as well as from very far afield. At camp they work in a professional setting, with professionals and like-minded peers who share the same talents and aspirations. Campers feel that they are part of something larger, and that’s because they are, an experience that for many is a transformative one.

Director's Message


Kenneth Avery-Clark, Principal
From London's West End. Kenneth is originally from Nova Scotia and brings with him a star crew!


I am so pleased to be returning to beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada. It holds a special place in my heart as I'm originally from there. It's also my escape from my hectic life living between London, New York and Rome.

So, what is this summer experience? Well, the idea came to me several years ago as I stood on the beach at Cornwallis looking out at the most beautiful sunset. What an amazing place this would be to spend two weeks with a bunch of like-minded kids and adults singing, dancing and acting EVERY day! So, last year I made it a reality and it was such a success we're coming back.  

We had people attend from all over Canada but also from Florida, Switzerland, France and the UK. This year is going to be even bigger and better (if that's possible). This year the theme is INTO THE WOODS, a recent Disney film but based on a musical theatre classic about children's fairy tales - with a twist. This will be the featured section of our live showcase in the 500 seat theatre on-site.  

The one thing I am extremely passionate about is that at AMTA we are a family. Our family grew for the better last summer and I can't wait to do it all over again.

See you then!

Stories & Testimonials


AMTA truly provided a unique and inspiring experience

I can say that AMTA’s summer intensive challenged my skills as a dancer, an actress, and a vocalist. Not only did it improve those skills, it also surrounded me with professionals who thoroughly supported me and gave me priceless advice about the industry. I have been through many different training programs, but AMTA truly provided a unique and inspiring experience. Many thanks to everyone who made this possible and made it so amazing!


I’ve waited my whole life to feel the happiness I felt for two weeks.

First of all, it was the best experience ever !! 

I’ve been dreaming about the AMTA for years, as you know, and to have the chance to learn from amazing teachers was such a chance. It was so inspiring, to dance, sing, and act with students from different places around the world, and teachers I would’ve never imagine I could learn from ! Also, the fact that it was a camp made it even more mesmerising... we had so much fun, shared joy and passion, but also stories, from each and everyone’s experience, and I think that’s what’s made it so precious to me. Michael and Alfie talked to us before they left, about how it’s never too late, they really believed in us and it was such a beautiful moment, I truly keep it in I truly keep it in my heart. The whole team was impressing ... Kenneth, Mark, Christie, Michael and Alfie, but also John and Kelly made this whole camp work, because of how they cared about all of us.

I wish Michael and Alfie would’ve stayed for the second week, it was so hard to say goodbye !!Also the place was perfect for the camp, it was so peaceful and special !! The team working there made it so lovely and nice. They were all so kind and took good care of us ! The cadets too are a huge part of the memories lol !

Having the show at the end was perfect, and to perform in the ensemble was such a thrill !!!!! 
I started writing, composing and recording my own songs and I think it’s because I’ve learned so much in Nova Scotia. I don’t know how to explain it, but it really felt like a relief, like if I’ve waited my whole life to feel the happiness I felt for two weeks... it just felt like I was doing the right thing for the first time.. In France we don’t have anything close to what musicals are. We don’t have a musical show in school or anything, so it was the first time I got to share my passion with other people, and it was really precious...
I’m still in contact with all of the students, and we have a chat group in which we give each other news and send pictures I really met some beautiful beautiful friends.

A magical blend of hard work and happy times!

Every day of AMTA Canada’s 2017 two-week musical theatre camp was an amazing day. Having had only a very few actual dance classes more than 30 years prior to the camp (I was on the adult program obviously), the dance teachers were patient, fun and encouraging, and taught me a lot in a very short time.

Singing was daunting for me, but the excellent guidance and support I received has given me much more confidence in my ability to deliver an entertaining and emotionally moving vocal performance.

Acting classes were highly amusing as well as touching and very helpful. I was so impressed with and inspired by the other participants and their talents. Besides lots of laughs, I was often moved to tears seeing both the raw talent and the improvements in performance the coaching/directing made for some of us.

Got lots of great tips and insights into professional musical theatre preparation strategies, rehearsal processes, and what it takes to succeed/land a role. A magical blend of hard work and happy times!
