ABOUT BRIGHTON GIRLS CAMP
This camp is operated through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Our program is based on our Savior, Jesus Christ, and gospel topics are openly shared and discussed throughout our program.
In 1911, the General Young Women Presidency made a decision to find a summer camp for young women to get away from the valley heat and provide a retreat. In 1918, a search began for the perfect spot in which a summer home could be made and Brighton was selected. Brighton was completed and dedicated by Heber J. Grant in 1921. Brighton has a very rich pioneer heritage and coming to camp makes you a part of Brighton’s continuing history.
Brighton is a camp for the young women the year they turn 13 only. We offer an eight-week summer season and have room for 180 campers per week. We provide a complete, week-long program of exciting activities such as ropes courses, cook-outs, singing, zip-line, crafts, rappelling, hikes, testimony-building activities and much more, all led by trained camp counselors and staff! No ward or stake YW leaders attend.
Campers stay in one of six Swiss-style cabins with all meals provided. Chartered bus transportation to and from camp is also included in registration fees. Sponsoring stakes support Brighton Girls Camp and are given priority placement for their campers. However, girls do not need to be in a sponsoring stake to attend.
Attending Brighton Girls Camp is a unique experience. At camp we can grow and develop spiritually. Brighton is a camp of faith, where we learn the language of the Holy Ghost, we feel the love of our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ, and we speak openly of His gospel every day. You can make new friends as you reach out to others in kindness and acceptance. We hope you will find Brighton Girls Camp to be a place of learning and fun and where you will see and feel His love.
