The whole week is sponsored by the inimitable Young America's Foundation. Aside from this event and the array of speaking events they help sponsor at colleges unwilling to foot the bill to bring in those who might challenge their conventional wisdom, Young America's Foundation also sponsors another "Conservative Boot Camp," of sorts.
Out in Santa Barbara, CA (with a visit to the Reagan Ranch included), they bring in a small group of college undergrad and grad students to discuss some of the great conservative-related thinkers: Russell Kirk, Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, and Frank Meyer. The one on Russell Kirk was well worth the drive, especially since we got to hear from his widow: Annette Kirk. The visit to the Reagan Ranch was a lot of fun. Even got to see the image of the Virgen de Guadalupe that the Reagans kept in a dear and honored place.
