Youth Conservation Corps

The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program offers an opportunity for youth 15-18 years of age to experience out-of-doors work projects along with learning opportunities. Work projects include trail repair, campsite rehabilitation, construction of picnic sites, area re-vegetation, exotic weed removal, painting of fences and other tasks needed to help keep the park in great condition.
Summer programs typically run 11 weeks. Work days are normally Monday – Thursday, except the first week, which will be Tuesday – Friday due to the Memorial Day holiday the last Monday in May. Bryce Canyon does not offer a residential program, therefore all participants must live outside the park and make arrangements for daily travel to work. Hours of work are 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM. The wage is $9.25 per hour (two dollars an hour over the Federal Minimum Wage).
