Dixie State Conferences and Workshops


Let us take the trouble out of planning your Ward/Stake Youth Conference! With a pre-planned itinerary all you need to worry about is transportation for your group. No preparing meals, washing dishes, coordinating schedules, etc. We take care of your lodging, arranging meals, booking rooms, and scheduling tours so all you have to do is show up! Our staff will also supplement off-campus activities with several on-campus activities throughout the conference to keep your group entertained. We are happy to work with you to customize a Youth Conference that will stay within your budget and create memories your youth will remember for years to come!
