Youth Exchange Conference

Central States Rotary Youth Exchange

This year’s summer conference dates are July 13-16, 2017.  Registration is underway, and is by invitation only; contact your district for instructions on how to register..  Keep watching here and our CSRYE Facebook page for updated information!  A tentative outline of the conference weekend is available here.

All students attending the summer conference must stay on the Calvin College campus.  Parents are encouraged to stay on campus as well.  For those seeking off-campus accommodations, CSRYE has negotiated a special rate of $112.00 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Grand Rapids Airport, a 5-minute drive from campus.  The room block is extremely limited.  To make a reservation, just click here.

One of the conference highlights each year is the Saturday evening talent & variety show.  Audition slots are limited, and advance sign-up is suggested.  Please click here for the flyer including audition information.

Again this year, the summer conference program is available on your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.  To download the app for your device, click on the corresponding icon below.  The conference code is 533233.  If you provided your email address when you registered for the conference, you should have received an email with your user name and password.  If not, you can sign up for a new account within the app, and we’ll assign you to your specific group (Inbound, Outbound, Rebound, Outbound Parent, Rebound Parent or Rotarian/ROTEX) within a day or so (less during the conference).
