Young Friends Conference Registration

“If you wanna say Bye-o (to the seniors), sign up by cinco de mayo.”

We are so stoked to see you in person! This information will be updated as needed. For more information go to the YF run website here.

This con requires a few extra things than "normal" because Grad Con Planners have taken risk management seriously. (I'm so proud of them!) And there is a registration deadline so that logistics can be reasonably managed. 

  1. You need to register using this form(the usual). There are additional questions to help with logistics.
  2. You need to make sure your med form is on file and up to date. Check with Sunshine at youthprograms@bym-rsf.org if you're not sure it's up to date.
  3. You need to sign the covid waiver here. This link will open it in a new window or tab depending on your browser settings.
  4. You will need to be tested and bring your negative results with you to con. This test needs to take place on or after May 10th. You may take a screenshot of your results and send them to Sunshine at youthprograms@bym-rsf.org. Make sure your name, the test date, and the result are included in the image.
  5. YF is strongly encouraging that folks quarantine after testing until con if possible. 

What to know about this con and what to bring:

  • This con has a cap of 30 Young Friends
  • The deadline to register is 5pm on Wednesday, May 5th
    • Registration has closed
  • You need to be tested on or after May 10th and bring your negative results with you to con. If you get your results back before con, you can send them to youthprograms@bym-rsf.org.
  • You need to bring your own tent and sleeping supplies. If you don't have a tent, don't worry. We will make sure you're covered.
  • You need to bring your own lunch on Saturday.

 


Financial Aid: As a program we are committed to making sure everyone who wants to join us can. We do not turn people away due to finances. To request financial aid email Sunshine at youthprograms@bym-rsf.org. Do not register online.
 
If this is your first con of the school year, you also need to fill out the Medical History and Information form here. Please also use this link if you need to update your medical history and information form.
If you have not submitted this form for this academic year, please do so even though we are meeting virtually.
