Monticello Campus Pavilion

This year, George Wythe College’s annual Youth for America program (YFA) turns seven years old! YFA offers youth ages 12-18 an exceptional opportunity to spend time in a dynamic, fun-filled peer environment becoming inspired about education, great literature, principles of good government and world leadership. 

We are pleased to announce new facilities for this summer’s Level 4: World Leadership for the Young Statesman conference. Although the majority of the YFA conferences will still be held in Cedar City, Level 4, our YFA veterans, will be kicking-off our first year ever in Monticello, UT on the site of the new campus. The site and surrounding area are beautiful and an outdoor enthusiasts dream. 

The Level 4 conference will be a bit rustic (adventurous!) as we begin to create a wilderness wonderland on this new locale and it will be well worth the effort. 60 acres have been reserved for a Wilderness Conference Center. A steel frame pavilion, approximately three miles of road and one and a half miles of walking trails have already been erected and cut-in.   Flush toilets and hot water showers will be installed this year as well as a full outdoor kitchen. Plans for the Wilderness Center include a two-story rustic lodge (approximately 5,000 square feet), 10 small cabins, an outdoor amphitheatre and a number of smaller open-air meetings locations carved out of the abundance of small oak groves. A developer and architectural team have been retained and surveying and city planning and approvals are progressing with University site construction scheduled to begin in the fall of this year.
