The myFamily History Youth Camp has been canceled for 2018.  Please check back next year, or visit our youth programs website for a list of many other camp opportunities.

The myFamily History Youth Camp has changed! In an effort to lower the price and make this camp more accessible, this camp will now be a day camp! We will still have several exciting field trips, skilled teachers providing hands-on learning experiences for youth, and inspiring keynote speakers.

 Though this youth camp will be held in conjunction with the annual adult Family History Conference at BYU July 31–August 3, the youth camp will have a separate track of classes.

This is a four-day camp where youth ages 14–18 can come to BYU and be taught the fundamentals of family history research, gain hands-on experience, and acquire an understanding of the importance of this work. This camp is for students who are seeking a BYU experience and are willing to take an active role in helping individuals in their quest for eternal life as families.

This camp will include:

  • a trip to the new FamilySearch Discovery Center at Thanksgiving Point
  • a scavenger hunt which involves learning how to use the BYU Family History Library
  • a chance for you to become an expert on family history research.

Goal of the camp

Participants will leave the camp prepared to serve as family history consultants if called to do so. We hope this camp will prepare all participants to be independently motivated to continue working on their own family history and to inspire and assist those around them with their family history.
