To provide an experience for youth to develop, discover, and share their passions, skills, and talents to improve their families, their communities, and their world. We believe youth are capable of becoming contributing members of society in meaningful ways, today.
BASEcamp was founded in the fall of 2012 by Greg Tanner who previously directed the Especially for Youth Programs Department at Brigham Young University for nearly 13 years. During his leadership the EFY program expanded from 35 sessions and 20,000 youth to 120 sessions involving 50,000 youth. He also helped pilot the international version of EFY for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, called FSY (For the Strength of Youth) in 2006 in Germany, Sweden, Mexico, and the UK. This international version is now in many countries throughout the world. Greg served in the Thailand Bangkok Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and continues to serve in various positions in his local unit. He received an undergraduate degree in Accounting and a masters’ degree in Public Administration from Brigham Young University.
