“there's a flickering spark in us all which, if struck at just the right age,
I think, can light the rest of our lives”
– President Ronald Reagan
Who? High School Students
When? October 19-22, 2022
Where? The Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California
The cost? Only $100!
This four-day program will give high school students an insight into the people, places, and ideas that shaped our 40th President, allowing them to better understand why and how Ronald Reagan changed the country and the world and how they can do the same. The very essence of President Reagan’s character is found at the Ranch—his humility, optimism, hard work, love for freedom, and belief in the American Dream. The Ranch embodies his vision of what America was, is, and could be –a “Shining City on a Hill.”
Today, young people are taught that America is the exact opposite –a place of racism, oppression, and limited opportunity– and that our most important systems and institutions– the Constitution, free enterprise, free speech, and religious liberty among them – are simply instruments of this oppression. This program will help students grapple with important questions about American identity and better equip them to understand and defend the principles of freedom.
Throughout this program, students will hear from some of the Conservative Movement’s brightest minds, be inspired by their stories and insights, meet like-minded peers from across the country, and tour Rancho del Cielo, Ronald Reagan’s “Western White House” and home of 25 years.
This educational program will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 19, and will conclude on Saturday, October 22, at 5:00 p.m.
WHAT’S INCLUDED: The conference fee of $100 includes three nights in a hotel, conference materials, transportation during the program, and meals from Wednesday dinner through Saturday lunch.
