Event Details

What is Kallah?

We are so excited to have the first opportunity of the new year for CRW to come together and celebrate our community!  This convention is the high point of the fall semester for many people in Central Region West.

Kallah will offer a long weekend in the Santa Cruz mountains with friends where you'll be able to explore and reflect on who you are and what matters to you. You'll hear from inspiring leaders, have powerful conversations with your friends, rep your chapter's spirit, sing, dance, play, and we'll celebrate Shabbat together.  This is our opportunity to be a light to one another.

Who is invited?

Kallah is open to all BBYO members in 8th through 12th grade.

Registration Details:

We have worked to keep the cost of this convention as low as possible to keep it accessible to everyone.  Even though we are adding an entire extra day of programming, we have managed to keep the cost closely in line with past conventions.

  • Early bird registration: $399.00. Deadline: October 6 at 11:59 PM PT.

  • Regular registration: $455.00. Deadline: October 27 at 11:59 PM PT.

Financial aid is available. More details in our FAQ. Apply at this link before October 6.

Cost of convention covers lodging for three nights, eight meals, snacks, and all conference materials (and travel, for those living in the East Bay, farther from our venue). This includes access to special guests, participation in high-value programming and the support of our professional staff team.

Capacity at our venue is limited -- don't wait to sign up!


Cost: $455.00

Cost: $455.00


Will there be bus transportation?

Yes. We will provide bus transportation for those joining us from the East Bay at no additional cost. For those coming from the Peninsula or South Bay, chapters should make sure to help one another with arranging carpools. Please note that teens may not drive themselves to or from convention.

What are your COVID procedures? Tell me about your safety protocols.

All participants, staff, and guests at convention must provide proof of full vaccination in order to attend. We will collect photos of vaccine cards at check in.  There will not be any exception to this rule.

All teens, guests, staff, and advisors must take an at-home COVID test on the day of arrival to convention.  You will be expected to show a photo of your test taken Thursday to be allowed to check in.

At present, masking is not required at regional conventions, but any teen who wants to wear a mask may do so.

We are keeping a close eye on ever-changing circumstances and may communicate updates to any of these policies or procedures prior to convention start.

Do you provide scholarships? How does that work?

Scholarships are available and are need-based (based on income and specific circumstances). Applications are due by October 6 at 11:59PM PT. You will receive notification the following week about your status and we will, at that time, invite you to pay your balance in full. All scholarship applicants will also be granted the early bird price ($399) less their awarded scholarship amount.

Apply at this link.

What’s your cancellation policy?

The deadline to cancel with a full program refund is the final registration deadline for this program (October 27, 2022). Until that date, full refunds will be granted for cancellations in writing (e-mail is acceptable), for any reason. After the registration deadline, partial refunds may be available based on convention expenses already paid (lodging, transportation, etc.), but are not guaranteed. “No shows” will not receive a refund.

In the event of emergency circumstances, please contact our office.


Have other questions? We're happy to help -- please feel free to contact us: [email protected]. Note that key details like packing lists and other pre-convention information will be sent by e-mail closer to date to all participants.
