“Summer Programs Offered by BYU, Ricks,” Ensign, June 1978, 80
Thousands of Latter-day Saints in the United States and Canada will participate in dozens of programs offered this summer by Brigham Young University and Ricks College.
Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho, concentrates on family-centered programs, many in an outdoor setting. Family Week—any week from mid-June through mid-August—provides activities for the whole family; the Sons of Helaman Campaign is a five-day wilderness experience for fathers and sons during July and August; and a five-week Discovery Program for college-age youth, held through the summer and the fall, seeks to develop family leadership skills.
For information on these and other programs, write to Ricks College Summer School, Rexburg, Idaho 83440.
The BYU campus is the scene for over 25 youth workshops and six adult workshops. Youth programs include athletic, music, debate, college preparation, dance, backpacking, and theater workshops. Of general interest are “Especially for Youth,” one week of classes, devotionals, and activities; “Academy for Girls,” two weeks of learning, fun, fashion shows, crafts, food, and classes; and a workshop for deaf youth.
Adult programs include coaching and refereeing clinics, dance workshops, and the Rocky Mountain Writers Convention.
