Concurrent with this year’s conference is a new youth camp: myFamily History Youth Camp. The camp is designed for young members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, age 14-18. The goal of the camp is that “each youth who attends this camp will leave with enough knowledge and ability in family history research to become a ward family history consultant, able to pass on his or her knowledge and excitement about family history work to other ward members, family and friends.” The camp includes a joint dance with another popular BYU youth camp: Especially for Youth. Attendees will attend the keynote sessions of the adult conference: Elder Gerald N. Lund of the Church, Robert Kehrer of FamilySearch, Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems., and movie producer, T.C. Christensen. Participants will take several field trips, including one to the Salt Lake City Family History Library. The schedule includes plenty of hands-on lab time. Participants can stay on-campus or arrange for their own housing. For more information, visit http://ce.byu.edu/cw/myFamily.
