 BYU Law Camp Counselor

Description

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.  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.
