Believe. Act. Serve. Endure. When faith, principles, and action combine for a life of meaning and direction.

"The exercise of faith in Jesus Christ is relying upon His merits, mercy, and grace. We begin to come to know the Savior as we arouse our spiritual faculties and experiment upon His teachings, even until we can give place in our souls for a portion of His words. As our faith in the Lord increases, we trust in Him and have confidence in His power to redeem, heal, and strengthen us."
(David A. Bednar)

             bored?                plan something that matters!

A very unique part of this adventure is something we call Design-Your-Experience (DYE).  

With the assistance of young adult Guides, youth collaborate with other youth and set their tribe's agenda. From time management and goal setting, to planning and implementing, to evaluating and adjusting, the youth learn and practice skills allowing them to accomplish their own ideas.  Each location of BASEcamp offers a variety of opportunities and we strive to use our time wisely ( see PMG chapter 8).  

tired of sitting around? accomplish something meaningful!

Because each location of BASEcamp offers a variety of opportunities, and YOU get to design your experience, we truly Walk-the-Walk!  

We have participated in beach clean-up, built homes with Habitat for Humanity, delivered cookies to Assisted Living Centers for Veterans, and collected new socks for homeless shelters, just to name a few examples.  Wherever possible we have participated in Temple & Family History work, Indexing, and cemetery mapping for the Billion Graves project. Come get your hands (and sometimes shoes) dirty in serving others.

Join TEAM-BASEcamp!!  Put more meaning into your calendar and join the cause for Good!  

Combine your efforts year-round with other youth who are striving to make a difference, receive support from amazing young adult Guides, brainstorm ideas and solutions to community and world challenges, and find helpful videos, links, and suggestions for a meaningful life. You can also get involved planning activities in your area. 

Together Everyone Accomplishes More!

"be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only" (james 1:22)


The BASEcamp experience has been designed for all youth ages 13-18 years old.  With greater challenges and opportunities surrounding the youth at younger ages we must start preparing them earlier by offering experiences that develop confidence and courage within them.  If you feel your child is mature enough to begin earlier than 13, please contact us so we can make sure the BASEcamp experience is a good fit.


"True conversion is more than merely having a knowledge of gospel principles and implies even more than just having a testimony of those principles. It is possible to have a testimony of the gospel without living it. Being truly converted means we are acting upon what we believe and allowing it to create a mighty change in us, or in our hearts...You become converted as a result of … righteous efforts to follow the Savior.”
