  • Founded in 1981 and housed at the Suffield Academy in Suffield, Connecticut, YPI, Inc. (formerly the Young People’s Institute) is a two-week long co-educational residential summer camp for the creative arts. YPI exists to create a safe and inspirational environment where children of diverse backgrounds and skill levels can feel free to create, explore, grow, and share their talents under the thoughtful guidance of professional artists and caring staff. YPI seeks to produce an environment of cooperative learning for the young people it serves.

    YPI encourages and supports artistic growth in young people. Students are challenged to produce works of art at a high level in their workshops. Led by artists working in their chosen fields, young people explore poetry, short story, studio art, 3D design, photography, acting, musical theater, song writing, dance and movement. The learning process is enhanced by associations with comparably talented peers from all walks of life who may have vastly different experiences to share both inside and outside the classroom. YPI promotes the belief that everything produced is a ‘work in progress.’ These products of creativity deserve boundless encouragement as well as compassionate critical attention. At YPI, ‘There are no can’ts and no wonts.”
