We have a "Gma" parenting alert now about a new camp in California that's training teens to become internet stars. ABC's kayna Whitworth has the details. Business strategy but it's fun. Reporter: A truly unique summer camp straight out of Hollywood. ??? Reporter: Parents from around the world send their kids to southern California in the hopes that they will become the next social media star. It's not cheap. The ten-day immersion camp costing more than $2,000. ??? This is your world ??? Reporter: Some kids like Sofia montero and her 900,000 YouTube subscribers are well on their way to internet stardom.

I think I want to blog my acting journey. Uploading videos. Reporter: Studying under YouTube star and author Michael Buckley kids are schooled on how to master social media. I thought parent was have such an adverse reaction to this. That really does not seem to be the case. There is a disconnect. Sometimes between the parents and the kid and why is my kid spending so much time online and I always tell the parent, screen time equals learn time. Experts caution parents about letting their children create an identity based on internet popularity. Parents should be wary about creating an online identity that's only about popularity. I want parents to help their kids cultivate an online healthy identity. I want them to connect online and want them to be creative online. I don't want the goal to be completely about how many followers and how much money can I make. Reporter: For "Good morning America," kayna Whitworth, ABC news, Los Angeles.
