CAMP COUNSELOR APPLICATION

Please carefully read the following description.

BYU Law is excited to host its annual civics and leadership camp on July 29–August 3, 2019. Eighty high school students, ages 14-18, from around the country come to learn about civics and leadership through the lens of the law. The varied backgrounds and experiences of the participants help to create a rich atmosphere of learning and to provide a wide assortment of perspectives.

Camp Counselors play an integral role in the success of BYU Law Camp. We look to hire 5-8 undergraduate students who will be assigned 8-12 high school students each. The counselors will mentor students 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 and to stay in the dorms with their assigned students. There may also be other camp activities that require additional help.  

There will be some training meetings in July that Camp Counselors are asked to attend 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.
