Does it cost an additional fee for my teen to take a bus to/from Liberty Spring Fling 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 Spring Fling 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. Please plan to drop your teen off at Camp Ramah in the Poconos no earlier than 5:00 PM and no later than 6:30 PM on Friday, May 17th. Pick-up will take place at 3:00 PM on Sunday, May 19th.

Q&A

What should I bring?
Here is a suggested packing list for Liberty Spring Fling.

Is the food Kosher?
All food served at Spring Fling is strictly Kosher. Camp Ramah in the Poconos has a Kosher kitchen and will be serving Kosher meals.

My teen has a dietary restriction and/or allergy. Can you accomodate?
Yes - 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 and keep your teen's CampDoc profile updated. 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.

Do you take roommate requests?
For this particular convention, we do not take roommate requests. The purpose of this convention is for teens to meet members outside of their chapters and home communities. Many older teens often remark that they made their best friends in BBYO  because they were bunked together. We purposely put older members who are strong leaders in each bunk to assist with making each teen feel welcome and comfortable.

What is the cancellation/refund policy for Liberty Spring Fling?
The deadline to cancel with a full program refund is the final registration deadline for this program (Sunday, May 5th). Until that date, full refunds will be granted for cancellations in writing (e-mail is acceptable), for any reason. After the registration deadline (Sunday, May 5th), partial refunds may be available based on convention expenses already paid (hotel, transportation, etc.). Within ten days of convention (Tuesday, May 7th) we’ve already confirmed final counts with our vendors, and no refunds will be given. “No shows” will not receive a refund.
