Parent Testimonials 

“I firmly believe it was the teachings of this camp that helped my daughter through her toughest trial. I can’t say enough about Barbara and her amazing program! Your daughters will come home a different person. They will have experiences that will change their lives.” -Mother of 2013 Participant

“My oldest daughter attended BBY camp many times during her teenage years. I know this program was instrumental in helping her to become who she is today. After she attend BBY she developed a love for people who had less than she did, her testimony grew tremendously, and she had learned how much her contribution to the world mattered. She knew who she was and that her Heavenly Father needed her to use his gifts to help build His kingdom. This camp helped her confidence increase, and she learned to care more of how her Savior saw her than her peers. She would not be where she is today if it weren’t for Be the Best You!” -Mother of 2010 Participant

“Thanks for all the outpouring of love to my daughter. You have been a tremendous healer to her heart this week.”  -Mother of 2014 Participant

“BBY camp was the best thing that has ever happened to me! This camp reminds you to stay true to yourself and to always be the best version of yourself. I was reminded to try to be more grateful with what I have, and forget all the things I want. I truly feel that I’m changed because of this camp. I am a daughter of God! I am a princess!”
