CRUSY holds five conventions yearly. They are: Camp CRUSY, Fall Boards, Fall Kinnus, Specialty Kinnus, and Regional Convention. Camp CRUSY is a Jewish summer-camp experience, with other teens from the region. Fall Boards is a convention dedicated to leadership building within chapter boards. Thus, only chapter board members are allowed to attend. Fall Kinnus and Specialty Kinnus are very similar, as kids are hosted by families within the city that the convention is held, but during Specialty, more emphasis is put on Tzedakah, or charity. Regionals, much heralded as the best convention, is held at a hotel, and encompasses all aspects of the other conventions, but the new Executive Board is elected and installed during the final convention.
