HEALTH REQUIREMENTS AND FORMS:
Beginning in August 2021, BBYO is requiring all teens, staff, adult volunteers, and advisors attending any overnight programs (chapter, city, council, regional, and international programs) based in the United States to be fully vaccinated (vax date plus two weeks). Currently, Moderna, Pfizer, Astra Zeneca, or Johnson & Johnson are the accepted vaccines.
If your teen attended a BBYO summer program and has already uploaded their vaccination card to CampDoc, BBYO will transfer that over to their MyBBYO account so you do not need to do anything
If your teen did not attend a BBYO summer program, follow these steps:
Go to bbyo.org and sign into your account
Under program alerts, you will see vaccine acknowledgement with the name of each of your teens and a button for the waiver
Click on complete waiver
Please read through entire waiver, sign and click submit
Reminder: this will NOT show up on a teen account only a parent account
BBYO works with CampDoc, the leading electronic health record system. All participants and parents are required to complete a health file before attending a BBYO convention. Once you have registered for the convention, you will receive an email inviting you to join CampDoc. Accept the invitation and complete or update all forms. These forms provide dietary, medical and other important information. Teens will not be allowed to attend without a complete profile.
As you sign up for convention, we want to provide more clarity on how we are navigating COVID at this overnight event. Based on the CDC and BBYO guidelines, and our own experience and ability, we are moving forward with convention by doing the following:
All staff/advisors/teens/guests are required to be vaccinated
Hand washing and sanitizer will be abundantly available (and encouraged)
A day of at home rapid test will be required prior to attending convention.
WHAT TO BRING: A detailed packing list will be sent out in the weeks leading up to convention. The teens will be staying in hotel rooms. The food will be kosher style, vegetarian.
TRANSPORTATION: A transportation and logistics email will go out one week prior to convention and will include transportation info. Please note teens are never allowed to drive to BBYO conventions.
REFUNDS: The last day for a full refund is Friday, September 16th.
