Camp Docs only has to be completed once a year. If the teen has already attended a regional convention this year just update the forms if there are changes in the medical information you provided.

Accept the invitation and complete all the forms. These forms provide dietary, medical and other important information. CampDoc forms must be completed by  

 

HOUSING 

 

Spring Cultural is a home-housed convention meaning Richmond BBYO families will host the teens from out of town in their homes for the weekend. All events will be held at the Weinstein JCC but the teens will sleep with their host families. BBYO will provide dinner upon arrival on Friday night, lunch on Saturday and lunch on Sunday.  

  • We request that all Richmond BBYO families, with teens participating in the convention, open their home to our out of town guests. Housing teens makes the weekend more fun and can foster lifelong friendships.  
  • Richmond families must complete the digital Housing form by Sunday, March 17th.  BBYO will manage and assign all housing arrangements – Richmond teens can request an out of town teen to stay at their house and out of town teens can request a home to stay in.
