What is Convention?
It's an overnight event packed with everyone's friends having the best time. It's an opportunity to unplug, learn, connect, and celebrate the fact that we are all in this together. Imagine being at camp with teen leaders from around the region- sharing stories, tips, and ideas from the year, and building upon the relationships that formed months or years ago.

Conventions are a space where new members of the community can feel the energy and love of a global movement. A space for like-minded people to belong and learn new ideas, so they’re inspired to create the work that’s within them. 

Cost: $325.00 (due by 04/29/2022)
Deposit Amount: $175.00

Location: Granbury 76049

WHAT IF WE CAN NOT AFFORD CONVENTION?

Scholarships are available for all NTO teens. Families can apply for a scholarship only after they are registered for the convention at bit.ly/bbyoscholarship. The scholarship application closes on April 10! 

HOW DOES TRANSPORTATION WORK FOR CONVENTION?

We will be providing bussing from two locations to the convention. Parents will be responsible for dropping off teens and picking up teens at one of these locations. You will choose your location when you register. On Friday, teens will need to arrive by 4:30 PM to depart to camp at 5 PM. On Sunday, teens will be departing from camp at 12 PM with an expected arrival back to the Dallas area of 1:30 PM. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

WHAT ARE THE MEALS LIKE? WHAT IF I HAVE A DIETARY RESTRICTION?

All BBYO meals are Kosher Style with vegetarian and vegan options. We ask for allergy information and food needs on the online medical form and we appreciate you sharing information as soon as possible so that we can accommodate specific food needs and limitations. All BBYO conventions are peanut and tree nut-free.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION/REFUND POLICY?

The deadline to cancel with a full program refund is the final registration deadline for this program (April 13). Until that date, full refunds will be granted for cancellations in writing (e-mail is acceptable), for any reason. On April 14 we will have confirmed final counts with our vendors, and no refunds will be given. “No shows” will not receive a refund.

WHAT IS BBYO'S DISCIPLINE POLICY?

As a reminder, when you registered for membership you signed BBYO’s Code of Conduct, which outlines our policies for substance abuse, property damage, and behavior guidelines with the full understanding of our behavioral expectations as a member of BBYO. Rules and guidelines will be made clear to all participants upon their arrival at the convention opening. Should one of our teens choose to act outside of our Code of Conduct, the incident will be addressed by the appropriate staff members. We have a zero-tolerance approach to any violation of the Code of Conduct and any disciplinary matter that comes to the attention of staff. If you are (or your teen is) dismissed from BOTC for disciplinary reasons or Code of Conduct violations, BBYO staff will arrange for travel home immediately, at your family’s expense and without a refund.

WHAT ARE THE COVID PRECAUTIONS/POLICIES?

Our convention will be taking place at an outdoor summer camp. We have several large spaces indoors This space will be used for meals, programming, and Shabbat services. We are hoping to take advantage of a nice weekend of weather as our convention site has plenty of outdoor spaces.

Below are the current COVID protocols we have in place though they are subject to change based on local laws, regulations, and guidance:

  • Masks must be worn over the mouth and nose at all indoor programming by all attendees unless they are actively eating or drinking. *we will update our mask policy as we learn more*
  • All adults present at the convention must be vaccinated (staff, advisors, speakers, other volunteers)
  • All teens attending this convention (or any other overnight experience) must be fully vaccinated by Sunday, April15.
  • Parents must complete the updated vaccination waiver for each of their teens by Wednesday, April 13 (no need to do if you completed it for any conventions in the last 6 months). There are two ways to complete the form:
    1. Log into your MyBBYO account at bbyo.org
      • Go to "Vaccine Acknowledgement" under "Program Alerts"
      • Click "Complete Waiver" for each teen
    2. Go to bbyo.org/waivers/vaccination-acknowledgement and complete the form
  • Teens will not be able to complete this form as it is only available on parent accounts. Once this form has been completed, it will carry over for all future events.
  • Updates to the COVID-19 policies for this convention can be made up until the convention. BBYO will communicate any updates as quickly as possible.
