I have been a part of BYS for 6 years, 4 of which as a participant and 2 as a counselor/staff, and it only gets better every year. It's a week of fun people, presenters, performers, good food, and groups. It's the highlight of my summer every year! See More

My daughters have loved BYS. My oldest has now attended first as an attendee and now as a counselor and both experiences were amazing. Truly life changing! So thankful for this program.

An incredible spiritual experience. Counsellors instantly become the youth's biggest cheerleader, and the kids go home full of tears on such s spiritual high, having made amazing new friends. Always i...ncluded are great and talented acts that the kids and counsellors all love. BYS offers a more hands-on experience than EFY. Spots to quick for a reason! See More

Braxton had a GREAT experience at BYS.....didn't realize it was going to fill up so fast this year! I didn't get my son Bryce registered in time so if there are any boys that don't end up being able go, I would LOVE to get Bryce a spot in this year's BYS and would pay you the full price so you won't lose your money.

What a refreshing taste of the gospel. This church is true and BYS is a strong testament of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I AM READY NOW.

Counselor Applications are available on our website!

If you are 17 or older and graduated from high school we would love for you to apply to be a counselor or staff member for BYS! You will find the application under the 'Staff & Counselor' tab at the top of the home page.

Thank you for being patient. We had so many people trying to access the site, our links crashed and we had to fix them. It is all taken care of now!


Please be patient while we are working with some technical problems (we know they are asking for an access code...there isn't one). Registration will be open soon!! We are working as fast as we can to resolve the problem!

BE KIND AT REGISTRATION TIME. Since 1999 my wife and children have been thrilled to be part of BYS. It is humbling to have been part of this program with amazing volunteers and leaders. My wife and I are no longer the directors but we want to invite you to show Christlike love during the registration process. The BYS staff does all they can to make sure the process is as smooth as possible even though all who wish cannot get in. Each year they try to make room for more partic...ipants. Don't hesitate to go to Nampa--it was much more intimate and equally wonderful! Suggestions if you don't get in: Get on the wait list, be patient, and pray. Questions & concerns should all go to Thoughtful and caring people will respond. Thanks for 19 great years! (don't be shocked if I am still riding around on a golf cart this year and throwing out candy). POSTED BY BROTHER SPJUTE IN THE VISITOR'S POSTS of our page.
