Teens providing their own transportation are not permitted to drive themselves to overnight BBYO events and will need to arrange for their own ride to and from the event. 


Who is this convention for?

This convention is for all members of BBYO in 8th-12th grade. To learn more about membership visit bbyo.org/become-a-member.


What is included in the registration fee?

Registration covers the costs of convention weekend including lodging, meals, program supplies, transportation, and more!


Can I cancel my registration?

You can cancel your registration for a full refund through March 20th. Starting March 21st, cancellations will be non-refundable as confirmation will have already been placed with the hotel.  


What health and safety procedures will be in place for this event? 

BBYO is working with local guidelines and an internal medical team to determine regulations for this event. Below are some of the guidelines that have already been set for this event – we will send out any updates prior to the event.

-   All participants must be fully vaccinated (as determined by CDC) to attend this event.

-   As of now, all teens registered will be required to wear a mask while at the event and when on the busses to and from the event except when in their assigned hotel room or eating.

-   All participants must attend the full convention weekend, we will not be allowing any teens to come and go throughout the weekend.

- Teens can choose to register for a double room (2 occupants) instead of our standard room (4 occupants) at an added cost. 


How many teens are in a room? 

Teens will be assigned to a room with up to 3 other occupants (4 total).

If you are interested in signing up to be in a double (room with 2 beds and one roommate) instead of our standard rooms, click THIS LINK to register for convention. This link will bring you to a different registration that reflects the additional pricing to cover the difference of the room rates (an additional $55/person). Please know that in this situation, we will do our best to place teens with their roommate requests but both teens will have had to select this option in order to accommodate.
