Frequently Asked Questions

Will this be fun?

Absolutely! Each day you will enjoy a variety of activities that will be fun, instructive, and provide maximum opportunity for you to make new friends. In addition to interactive classes, informative lectures, and a day trip to a courthouse, you will enjoy fun evening activities such as a movie night, variety show, and dance.

Can non-LDS youth attend?

Yes! This camp is designed for all youth who appreciate BYU's high standards, friendliness, and excellent learning environment. The camp staff and instructors are predominately LDS, as are most of the participants. However, we encourage a respectful attitude toward all religious beliefs.

Is there a stay-at-home option?

No, all participants will stay overnight in the dorms.

How do I know if I already have a BYU Continuing Education user ID?

If you have ever registered for a BYU Continuing Education program (EFY, PowWow, Education Week, Dance Camps, etc.), you most likely have a BYU Continuing Education user ID. You may also call BYU Continuing Education's registration office at 801-422-8925 (toll free, 1-877-221-6716) to see if you have a BYU Continuing Education User ID.

What if I forgot my BYU Continuing Education username or password?

This link will take you to the log-in page. Below the log-in boxes are "Forgot User ID?" and "Forgot password?" links. Click on these to retrieve your BYU Continuing Education user ID and/or password. If you have any trouble with this process, call Registration at 801-422-8925 or toll-free 1-877-221-6716.

If I attend part of the session and go home early, can I receive a refund for the days I did not attend?

No.

How do I get a copy of my confirmation?

You may print a copy of the confirmation page when you finish registering. You can log into your account and print it, or request an electronic copy by calling Registration at 801-422-8925 or toll free 1-877-221-6716.

What information will I need to register?

You will need the following participant information (if you do not already have an account):

  • Name

  • Birth date

  • Address

  • Phone number

  • Email address you want all camp information sent to

Roommate information if requesting a roommate:

  • Full name (as it appears on the roommate's registration)

Can I choose a roommate?

Yes. This can be done anytime during registration and up to two weeks before the program begins. Roommates must be the same gender and must be attending the same camp. Both individuals will need to request to room together or you will not be placed with your requested roommate.

To add, delete, or change your roommate preference, log into your account, click "edit/transfer," click on "housing," then change your roommate preference. All roommate information should be finalized before registration closes for the session for which you are registered (midnight of the Sunday two weeks before your session begins).

Is there a deadline for withdrawals and transfers?

Yes. All withdrawals must be completed by midnight mountain time July 1, 2017. We cannot make exceptions for those who misunderstand the time and date of the deadline.

Withdrawing from this program means you are no longer enrolled and may not attend any portion of the program. You will receive a tuition refund minus a nonrefundable $50 withdrawal fee. If you accidentally withdraw, or if you withdraw and re-enroll (instead of transferring), please contact us at 801-422-7692.

Are participants allowed to bring a cell phone?

Participants may bring a cell phone to be used at appropriate times. The use of a cell phone is not permitted during any of the following activities:

  • Classes. This can be distracting to other students and is not courteous to the teacher.

  • Any organized meeting with the camp, such classes, devotionals, guest speakers, when the director or counselors are addressing the camp, etc.

  • Any organized activity that requires your full attention and participation.

It is appropriate to use cell phones during:

  • Meals

  • Free time

  • In your dorm room after head count/evening devotional.

Please take precautions when bringing and carrying cell phones. We are not responsible if one is lost or stolen.

Are there any types of scholarships or financial aid?

Yes! Merit-based scholarships and need-based financial aid are available. For information, please call 801-422-7692.

Is early housing available?

If transportation scheduling requires you to arrive a day early, you may do so. You are responsible to pay a special housing fee that covers the cost of lodging, meals, and supervision until the program officially begins.  Housing is not available after the program.

You may arrange for early arrival housing up to one month prior to the start of the camp either by selecting that option during registration or by calling 801-422-7692.

Is there a BYU shuttle service from the Salt Lake City International Airport to BYU?

BYU does not coordinate any shuttle services between the Salt Lake City Airport and Provo. There are companies that offer shuttle services between the airport and Provo, but you will need to contact them directly. You can call Express Shuttle at 1-800-397-0773. It is up to each participant to find his or her own transportation to and from BYU.

Can you give me the names and phone numbers of other participants attending the camp so I can make carpool arrangements?

We cannot share participant contact information as it is confidential.

Furthermore, all students staying in university-contracted housing are required to abstain from possessing, serving, or consuming alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and harmful drugs. Involvement with gambling, pornographic, erotic or indecent material, disorderly, obscene or indecent conduct or expressions, or with other offensive materials, expressions or conduct or disruption of the peace which, in the sole discretion and judgment of the university, is inconsistent with the principles of the Church and the BYU Honor Code is not permitted in student housing. All guests of students must comply with the Residential Living Standards while on the premises of university-contracted housing.

Participants found in violation of the Honor Code are subject to immediate dismissal without a refund. Parents are responsible for picking up a participant who has been dismissed and paying any costs incurred for transportation.

Involvement in any of the following will result in your being sent home immediately:

  1. Participating in or encouraging immoral behavior of any kind, including viewing pornography in any form.

Damages/Lost Keys

Damages—Participants are liable and will be billed for property damaged during their session.

Lost Keys—Participants will be issued keys to their housing unit and must return these keys to their counselors at checkout. Participants will be billed for lost keys and the cost of rekeying. Because the dorms are occupied by campus guests throughout the summer, there is no grace period for key returns. Rekeying an apartment costs $30.

What should I wear?

Participants may wear pants or shorts to class and most activities. Come prepared for changeable weather and varying indoor room temperatures. All clothing must adhere to the dress standards listed in the BYU Honor Code.

Shorts and skirts worn on campus must be knee length; no sleeveless shirts, bare midriffs, or tank tops are permitted.

Dress standards are strictly enforced.
