Join the Salt Lake County Youth Government at a FREE 3-day summer camp! This is a great opportunity for students to learn about how government works at the federal, state, and local levels and participate in a mock legislative experience. Students will tour the Utah State Capitol, interact with community leaders, and learn how to be impactful advocates. Lunch will be provided each day. Registration is limited to 40 attendees.
If you have questions about camp or the Youth Government, please contact Anna Vukin-Chow at

All Salt Lake County middle & high school students are welcome. This includes students at public and private schools and students who are homeschooled.

The Salt Lake County Youth Government is an excellent opportunity for Salt Lake County middle school and high school students to learn more about their government and develop leadership skills through hands-on experience.
Youth government is structured like the official Salt Lake County government; students can declare their candidacy and run for a variety of offices. Youth who want to participate but not hold an official elected position are also welcome, and they do not need to be otherwise affiliated with student governments or municipal youth councils to be involved.
During the year, students meet elected officials and learn more about their roles and responsibilities; learn about organizations that play a strong role in the community; learn how to be impactful advocates; and gain leadership experience through organizing service projects and other events in the community.
