CAMP COUNSELOR APPLICATION

Please carefully read the following description.

BYU Law is excited to host the second annual Civics, Law, and Leadership Camp on August 6 – 11, 2018. Eighty high school students, ages 14-18, from around the country come to learn about their civic duty through the lens of the legal profession. Their varied backgrounds and experience help create an atmosphere of learning, rich with a wide assortment of perspectives.

 Camp Counselors play an integral role in the success of the camp. We look to hire 5-8 undergraduate students who will be assigned 8-12 high school students each. They will mentor and participate in a variety of camp activities. They will be expected to attend and participate in all evening activities from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Some afternoon may require additional help. They will also be expected to stay in the dorms with their assigned students.

Prior to the start of camp, there will be some training meetings in July based on availability.

This is an incredibly unique opportunity to develop mentoring skills while interacting with current law students, professors, federal judges, and local practitioners. Most importantly, you will help shape and inspire the high school students assigned to your group.
