To apply for scholarship:
Is bus transportation offered for Liberty Fall Convention?
Yes! Bus transportation is being offered to/from convention at the following locations: Allentown JCC, Harrisburg JCC, Newtown Shopping Center, Siegel JCC, Wilkes Barre JCC. Please select one of these buses during registration.
Does it cost an additional fee for my teen to take a bus to/from Liberty Fall Convention?
No, the cost of the bus is already included in the cost of the convention weekend.
Are there adult chaperones on the buses?
Each bus has at least 1 adult chaperone. These chaperones are BBYO volunteer advisors, parents, or Madrichim (college students volunteering at convention).
I'm planning to drop off and pick up my teen at Liberty Fall Convention. How do I go about doing that?
Please select the "Parent Drop-off/Pick-up" option when telling us how your teen is arriving to convention. We will email you the exact address of the hotel the week of the event (we do not post it online for security purposes). Please plan to drop your teen off at the hotel no earlier than 5:00 PM and no later than 6:30 PM on Friday, October 19th. Pick-up will take place at 1:00 PM on Sunday, October 21st.
What should I bring?
Here is a suggested packing list for Liberty Fall Convention!
Is the food Kosher?
All food at conventions are kosher-style, meaning dairy and meat are not served together. However, the hotel does not have a kosher kitchen. There is a strict kosher option for teens at conventions, but the Office must be notified in advance.
My teen has a dietary restriction and/or allergy. Can you accomodate?
Yes - similar to the strict kosher option, we will ensure vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free meals are available if the Office is notified in advance. Please make sure to note this in the appropriate field in registration to ensure we can accomodate for your teen. All BBYO programs and events are nut-free.
My teen takes medication. What is your process for handling medication?
Teens are expected to self-administer their own prescription medication throughout the course of the convention weekend. We will not be collecting and distributing medication during the convention unless we receive a specific request from a teen’s parent. If you would like to speak about your teen’s medication needs, please contact us.
I want to request a roommate! How can I make that happen?
There is a spot on registration for teens to request roommates. Please type in the first AND last name of the person you'd like to room with. We can only accomodate mutual requests, meaning the person you request must request you, too. We will do our best to honor requests but cannot make any guarantees.
I'm a parent. Is there a way for me to participate in Liberty Fall Convention?
Yes! On Sunday, October 21st from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM we invite all parents to join us for a program on "Your Teen's Mental Health Through a Jewish Lens". We will be joined by professionals from all different fields to offer their perspectives on this important topic on parents' minds. We are also excited to offer you unique opportunity to see convention first-hand while the teens are experiencing the weekend. Lunch will be served. The cost of this program is $20/person. Please register here!
