FAQs

Will I receive an agenda and map for Youth Conference?

What are good ideas for workshops?
Service projects, hikes in Logan Canyon, teambuilding events at the USU Challenge Course, or a workshop based on your youth conference theme are always good options.

Are we in charge of workshops?
Yes groups are to provide the teaching of their workshops. Let your conference coordinator know what type of facilities you need. Vacant Gyms and rooms without desks and chairs are very difficult to reserve due to the demand for those facilities. We are not able to provide those type of spaces in all situations.

Yes, your group is responsible for finding and coordinating with a speaker for your banquet. If they need any audiovisual equipment (projector, screen, microphone, etc.), please contact your Youth Conference Facilitator to accommodate these needs.

Where do we park and how do we get there?
Each group will be assigned to a parking lot specific to the campus housing your group is staying in for youth conference. A map will be sent to you prior to your conference.

Your Youth Conference Facilitator can provide a parking permit when requested.

Is there a weight room, track, and/or swimming facilities?
All three of these facilities do exist on Utah State University campus. However, due to the high risk of injury, we do not allow anyone to use the weight room or the track. Use of the swimming facilities is allowed only during the reserved time slot for Swim & Gym as part of the 3-Day Package.

Can we come and tour campus prior to our conference?
Absolutely! We encourage you to come and take a tour of campus prior to your conference. April and May are the best months for these visits. This is a great way to get a great feel for what your conference will be like. Contact your conference coordinator to set up your group a tour.
