At the time of registration, a $250 deposit per program is required to save a registrant’s spot. This deposit is fully refundable through February 28, 2023.

Full payments are due by April 4, 2023 and after that day, payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. All payments made after this day are subject to a $75 late fee.

Due to the popularity of our Summer Experiences and to prevent disruption to program planning late in the season, no refunds or transfers will be issued after the final payment deadline date. This policy applies to cases of homesickness, dismissal, and voluntary withdrawal.

For BBYO International Immersive Experiences:  After participants make their initial $250 deposit, they will have the option to pay the outstanding funds either by credit card or e-check. If a credit card is chosen, participants will be charged a 3% fee that BBYO incurs from the credit card companies. This fee is non-refundable. There is no fee, however, if participants pay their balance by e-check. For additional questions, please contact  [email protected].

For CLTC, ILTC, Kallah, and Camp BBYO, the payment plan is as follows:

  • A $250 deposit is due at the time of registration

  • Half of the payment is due by February 28, 2023

  • Final payment is due by April 4, 2023

We are glad to accept registrations initiated after the final payment deadline. In these cases, fees  must be paid in full within 15 days. If teens register within 15 days of the start of their summer program, their balance must be paid in full before they arrive.


As a global youth-serving organization, BBYO prioritizes the physical and mental health of our teens, professionals, volunteers, and community.  

All those who are in attendance at BBYO overnight experiences (children and adults) are required to have age-appropriate vaccines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Please see our official vaccine policy here. BBYO reserves the right to update this policy based on the direction of BBYO’s Medical Advisory Committee.

BBYO's COVID-19 Policy follows the CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 vaccination and as a result, we highly recommend each participant be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 including the most recent booster available. Boosters are an important part of protecting yourself or someone around you from getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. BBYO is following the guidance of many public health institutions, scientists, and medical professionals who have led the battle against the coronavirus and are recommending that people be fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. We invite participants to wear masks should they wish to do so.

For overnight events of 50 participants or larger, as well as ALL overnight summer program experiences (regardless of group size), participants must arrive with a photo of a negative COVID-19 test taken the day of travel of their event with their name and the date written next to their test. At-home tests are acceptable.

Should a teen test positive, they will not be permitted to attend. As part of our commitment to one another in creating a safe and respectful community, we expect families to honor these requirements. Teens exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms at any immersive activity may be tested at any point. This policy is subject to change based on CDC guidelines and/or guidance from BBYO’s Medical Advisory Committee. BBYO reserves the right to add a COVID fee to participants’ registration, should the organization deem necessary.

For the safety of our teens, all medications—prescription and over the counter—for camp-based summer programs must go through CampMeds. This includes any over-the-counter medication, including supplements or vitamins. CampMeds medications must be filled no later than 30 days before the start of a program.  

BBYO staff are unable to distribute medication that a participant brings with them. All medications must be filled through CampMeds. Failure to accurately fill prescriptions through CampMeds will result in a $250 fee and medication brought will not be distributed. Failure to comply with the policy may result in a removal from the camp program.   

Medications used in emergency situations, like an epi pen or inhaler, as well as oral contraceptives can be brought to camp and do not need to be filled through CampMeds.  

Any medication questions should go through BBYO’s Head Nurse, Shelby Ashworth, at [email protected].

Wellness Staff Onsite:
Camp-based programs have a nurse and a mental health professional present at each session. If your teen has any updates to their mental or physical health, we kindly ask you reach out to our Senior Director of Wellness & Inclusion, Ari Handel, at [email protected].  

For food allergies or dietary needs, please reach out to [email protected].

Does my teen need a physician physical to participate in a summer experience?
Yes, BBYO has partnered with CampDoc for our families to easily upload health records, medical insurance, immunizations, and medications/allergies for all BBYO programs. Upon registration for any Summer Program, you will receive an email from CampDoc with access information to your profile. A teen’s account must be 100% completed to attend an International Summer Program (BBYO Passport, CLTC, ILTC, Kallah).

Please note, every participant is required to provide a copy of a physical received within one year (12 months) of the program start date (June 2023–August 2023). The BBYO medical form can be found through a teen’s CampDoc profile in the Healthcare Provider Form section.

For questions about CampDoc please contact [email protected].

BBYO strives to welcome all Jewish teens, regardless of background, denominational affiliation, gender, race, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status, including those with a range of intellectual, emotional, and physical abilities. Reasonable accommodations are made in an effort to create an inclusive environment. If you are interested in learning more, please contact our Senior Director of Wellness & Inclusion Ari Handel at [email protected].
