What is AFY?


Adventure for Youth (AFY) is a BYU-Idaho week-long summer youth program. The objective of this program is to strengthen the youth through significant learning and recreational experiences that will increase faith, as well as self-confidence and individual worth.

This is done by:

  1. Providing an ideal setting for opportunities to learn and grow. The Outdoor Learning Center is located on dedicated property. It is a beautiful and sacred environment where spiritual as well as recreational experiences occur.

  3. Gathering youth from various locations and backgrounds who have common values and goals.
