Students attending CSLC are billeted in the host community. Billeting is the “youth exchange” component of the conference and is very important to the tradition and spirit of CSLC. For delegates, their time with their billet families enables them to experience the culture and heritage of the host school’s community first-hand, and allows them to become part of that community for a few days.
