Come share a
Brighton experience with us!

Brighton Girls Camp is a camp for young women,
located at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon.

​It is operated through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
and is founded on the principles of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

The purpose of our program is to strengthen young women’s ​testimonies
of Jesus Christ, and their identity as daughters of God.

Brighton Girls Camp does NOT have wheelchair-accessible cabins or bathrooms and has uneven terrain and distance between activities make the use of crutches at camp very tiresome for campers. Young women with uncontrolled diabetes or other severe physical, emotional, or mental disabilities that prohibit full participation are encouraged to consider stake camp or special needs camp instead of BGC. Local stake/ward leaders do not attend BGC with their campers, and hired BGC counselors are not trained to handle severe disabilities. Campers who come to BGC are expected to function independently and be self-care. The National Ability Center offers numerous special needs opportunities when Brighton isn’t an option.

TESTIMONIALS

Literally the most amazing and spiritual experience of my life. Cassie made the camp so unbelievably special, from amazing food to incredibly fun and spiritual activities. I am so excited to come back next year. The camp is full of remarkable women, and I felt the spirit here more than any other place in my life. THANK YOU!!!

CAMPER

The counselors are not afraid of anything! They are always joyful, prepared for anything and make camp so much fun.

CAMPER

I learned to really trust the Lord in Lifeline. Challenges are trials…you can go back around and learn from your mistakes. I learned that being quiet with your own thoughts helps you hear our Heavenly Father.

CAMPER

This was the first time my daughter went to Brighton Girls Camp. She absolutely loved the experience. She came back declaring she really wants to go back each year. She loved the staff, the leaders that were in charge of them were so kind and fun! She mentioned that the food was yummy too. They did fun activities each day, the cabins and bathrooms were clean. She loved the scenic views and being in nature each day and she felt closer to the Lord. She learned good things. As parents we are joyful that she had such an incredible experience and thankful that there’s such a place as Brighton Girls Camp. Thank you great kind staff for a wonderful memorable time!

Everything seemed to go smoothly. My daughter had a good time and appreciated everyone singing happy birthday to her, especially the funny version of the song. Thanks!

PARENT OF CAMPER

Brighton Girls Camp grew my testimony and taught me to trust in God. I was scared to do zipline and repel, but I wanted to do it. My counselor supported me and we said a prayer on top of the cliff/platform, and I felt so strong. I was nervous to go, but at the end of the week, I never wanted to leave. I love all the people I met, and all of the opportunities I had to strengthen my testimony. Definitely a faith-building experience.

Alice

CAMPER

I loved spending time with people I didn’t know. 

CAMPER

I loved the brownies.

CAMPER

Don’t pack a lot because you have to carry everything up hernia hill and it might kill you. 

CAMPER

I had an amazing time at Brighton. Brighton counselors made me feel at home when I was homesick. I will never forget the amazing expirence!

Rose

CAMPER

My counselor would sing us to sleep!! Awesome. 

CAMPER

I am a college student now, but I still often think of the times I came to Brighton Camp and the wonderful counselors I had. Truly some of the best memories I have and I honestly wish I was still young enough to go one more time. If you are on the edge of going, I would tell you to absolutely go for it! You will gain so much out of it.

Isabella

CAMPER

My daughter felt a little out of place as a 14-year-old. She enjoyed the camp experience (on a very rainy week with no rappelling, zip line, A & B, or sunrise hike). Her only real complaint was that the portions of food were small and she was hungry.

Jennifer

PARENT OF CAMPER

We had a really good speaker on Weds night then the counselors sang to us. I think that was my favorite part of camp. It made me feel so close to Christ. 

CAMPER

My experience at camp was a great time! My favorite part at camp was that we had a 4th of July parade! I also enjoyed testimony meeting! I had a great time at camp and I would for sure go back!

Ruby

CAMPER

I wanted to come with a group of friends from my ward, but I had to come a different week. I’m so glad I came when I did. I’ve made so many new friends. The counselors really make sure we all get along and learn to appreciate each other. 

CAMPER

Going to Brighton Girls Camp has changed my life. The spirit is so strong up there, and it has led me closer to Jesus. Because of Brighton I now know just how much God and Jesus Christ love me.

Sharon

CAMPER

My daughter was scared but excited to go. My friend is a lifelong Brighton lady and we talked to her a lot so she felt prepared. She came home absolutely exhausted but with good memories. She says her favorite part was zip lining and repelling. She thinks the sunrise hike is not that great for how long it is. She liked the food. All in all she would give it 8/10.

Dana

PARENT OF CAMPER

My daughter had the BEST time. I can’t even imagine how much work running this camp is and I hope you know how grateful am for the life and testimony-changing affect this has on the girls. My girl probably spent an hour reading to us from her journal on Sunday and telling us all about it. Bravo- I’m so grateful all of you and that she got to attend! 

Jennifer

PARENT OF CAMPER

Camp changed my life. Since I went, I feel the spirit so much more. I feel like I can pray, and God will hear me. My sweet counselor was so kind and loving– I miss her so much! I wasn’t expecting to, but I made a lot of really good friends at camp, and I’m sure that we’ll stay in contact for a really long time. Going to camp was one of the best decisions of my life. 100% would recommend.

Mary

CAMPER

My counselor helped me so much to be comfortable meeting new people. By the end of the week, I felt really close to the other girls in my unit.

CAMPER

Food was good and we didn’t have to make it. 

CAMPER

The hikes were really neat. It is so pretty at Brighton and you can choose what hikes you want to go on. I went on the sunrise hike and we left in the middle of the night and got to the top of the mountain to see the sunrise. It was so cool. We sang a song at the top that made me really appreciate my Heavenly Father. 

CAMPER

Brighton camp was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I learned to push through fear and disappointment and have a heck of a lot of fun doing it. I still pull out the songbook and sing a few of my favorite songs from time to time. I love that place.

Emmy

CAMPER

My daughter loved every moment and is begging to return next year. The lifeline, repelling and zip line were some favorite activities. Her counselor Marit was brilliant and kind, creating a welcoming atmosphere. Best of all my daughter, shared that this was a “testimony building experience.”

Danielle

PARENT OF CAMPER

Brighton Girls Camp was the best experience of my life. I grew my testimony and my love for the Lord. I met the most amazing people and spent the best time in nature. The food was delicious, and the people are my favorite. Bekah Hacking was the greatest counselor and I love her dearly. Thank you Brighton Girls Camp for the best experience!

Ashlinn

CAMPER

I was so scared to come to Brighton Girls Camp but it ended up being the very best week of my life!! I had so much fun, made so many new friends, had the BEST counselor, and strengthened my testimony. I miss camp and especially my counselor and I am so sad I had to go, I had the very best time!

Claire

CAMPER

I attended camp when I was 12 and 13 years old. This experience really helped shape who I am and helped me develop a sense of adventure, but most importantly, helped me in developing my love for Jesus Christ through nature.

Maddy

CAMPER

I didn’t want to come to camp. I thought it would be boring but I’ve had so much fun. I feel so good being here. I don’t want to go home. 

CAMPER

Brighton was AMAZING!!! I loved my counselor and all the great memories I made with my unit!

Katalyn

CAMPER

My daughter was nervous to go to camp, but came back so happy with so many new friends! She talked about her experiences all the way home and said she would go back again, and she is not much of an outdoorsy girl! It made me so happy that Brighton camp is still a thing because I got to attend as a young girl back in the day and I highly recommend!

Kristin

PARENT OF CAMPER

My daughter loved Brighton! She especially loved the food, rappelling, senior missionaries, the songs and the “Spirit” that was there when the counselors would sing “Walk Tall, you’re a Daughter of God” at night outside of the cabins.

Autumn

PARENT OF CAMPER

My Mom made me come. I didn’t want to but now I don’t want to go home. I think I might want to come back one day when I’m older and be a camp counselor. They are so nice and really care about us. 

CAMPER

Rappelling was scary but I really learned to trust in the counselor. I didn’t think I could do it, but after I did it, I went 3 more times.

CAMPER

I have a real fear of heights but I tried rappelling and found that the steepest rock was the most fun and I learned not to be so scared because there are people to help us.

CAMPER

My daughter loved Brighton Girls Camp and Mountaineer Camp! She felt included and loved. She shared with me that she felt the Holy Ghost while listening to the theme song at camp and she knows God loves her 🙂

Holly

PARENT OF CAMPER

Zipline was today with our buddy unit. It was super amazing and a fun experience.

CAMPER

My favorite part of camp was Lifeline because it brought me closer to Christ. I learned to trust in my feelings and it’s ok to try hard things even though you don’t always know how to do something. If we are patient, we can rely on Christ to help with hard things.

CAMPER

I can’t wait to teach some of the camp songs to my friends. I bought one of the song books to take home. The songs are so spiritual and some are just really funny. I learned I can sing a song in my head if I ever feel scared or down and it will help me feel better.

CAMPER

The zip line was good and the repealing. But the life line was really hard with the snow. And getting to bed on time was hard with all the people talking and the counselors didn’t really do any thing about it.

Lilly

CAMPER

My daughter had a much better time than she was expecting. The number of activities kept her from too much homesickness. She quickly grew to love the girls in her unit as well as the counselor supporting them. The only suggestion relates to the amount of food apportioned to each girl. She said that she and the girls in her unit were hungry most of the week. Don’t know if something could be done about that, but it might help.

Cambria

PARENT OF CAMPER

Kk came home feeling like a new person! She had the best time at camp! She loved camp!

Kelly

PARENT OF CAMPER

It was fun going to summer camp in the snow. There were lots of things to do. The nights were freezing. The rappelling was fun after you stepped off. The food was good. My favorite song was “I Heard Him Come.”

Riley

CAMPER

I had an amazing time at Brighton and my counselor was the absolute best. All the activities were so fun, even with the snow. My testimony grew so much throughout the week and I got so much closer to God. My counselor helped me through the week and gave us hugs every night.

Sydney

CAMPER

My daughter had an AMAZING time. She loved being in nature and feeling close to Heavenly Father. She talked about how her testimony grew and how she developed new friendships. She loved her counselor and had an incredible week! Thank you!

SalleeAnn

PARENT OF CAMPER

Wonderful and amazing experience! Keep up the good work! And THANKS!

Julia

PARENT OF CAMPER

I never went to Brighton as a teen so I had no advice to give my oldest. She has loved both years and loved the second year more than the first. I can’t wait for my youngest to go.

Emily

PARENT OF CAMPER

The activities were fun, but we didn’t get enough food at mealtimes.

Ava

CAMPER

Brighton was an excellent experience for my daughter. My daughter had spiritual experiences bringing her closer to the Savior and helping solidify her identity as a daughter of God. Thank you for your hard work!

Laura

PARENT OF CAMPER

I learned that someone is always with us and willing to help us. We don’t have to go through trials or hard stuff alone. Heavenly Father is always with us too and will guide us.

CAMPER

This was my first year at Brighton Camp, I was soo nervous. But turns out, Brighton Camp is the best! I loved it, there are soo many things to do! Brighton Camp strengthen my testimony. It was the best experience for me.

Allie

CAMPER

Camp was really fun. I didn’t go with anyone I knew, so u didn’t think I was going to enjoy BGC. Aubrie was my counselor and made everything so much fun, from the meals to going to the bathroom. I will miss all the staff members and campers. Thanks for such a great time! 

❤

Darcie

CAMPER

It was really awesome and impactful to me.

Mel

CAMPER

I went to Brighton Girls Camp when I was a beehive and LOVED it! My experiences at Brighton became an anchor to my testimony. As a mom of a young woman, I was delighted to learn that I could sign up my daughter to go even though our stake isn’t a sponsoring stake. This was my daughter’s first time and she had an amazing experience. She loved Audrey her counselor, the activities and the food (haha)! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for all that you guys are doing to give this experience to young women.

Christina

PARENT OF CAMPER

Brownie hike was super fun.

CAMPER

Brighton was one of the best weeks in my life it was so fun! My counselor was Kip and she was so amazing! My favorite activity was repelling and the fireside. Our speaker was great and the song at the end was so good it made me cry. Would 100% recommend it is so fun and such a good experience.

Aaliyah

CAMPER

Brighton camp was so fun!! I am so glad that I decided to go, because I was on the fence about it… We did so many fun activities, and part of me was pretty sad to leave. I loved the theme “God is Mindful” because he really is! He loves us and we are his beloved daughters!!

Elle

CAMPER

I loved Brighton! It was life changing. It was the perfect amount of fun and spiritual. I was so sad to leave but so grateful I was able to experience this.
