Northeast Spring Convention FAQs

Spring Convention is the best opportunity for 8th graders to explore TY before they come for the entire session. Special tours and programming will be provided.

Bunks are organized according to grade. If you have concerns about bunking, please contact us at yjconvention@youngjudaea.org.

As long as you let us know on your medical form on the registration site, we’ll make sure that we have lots of options for you. Please be as specific as you can on your form. If you have filled out our form (not the same as the TY registration system) in the past, please make sure that you go in and update it.

See above. Please make sure that your medical form is up-to-date. As with camp, no medications (except for epi-pens and inhalers) may be kept in bunks. You will hand your medications to a staff member at registrations and they will distribute the doses at the proper times. Please pack your medications in a baggie with your name and instructions written on the bag. Over the counter medication will only be distributed with permission of parent. Please mark the space in the registration form that indicates that permission is given.

Registration is done entirely online. In order for participants to register just go to RegPacks – you simply choose the event Northeast Spring Convention 2018. If you/your teen has already registered for an event, please do not open a new account, call 917-595-2100 x209 if you have any questions or issues with registration.

All Participants and Parents must sign and return this form (PDF Version) or this form (Word version). Forms can be sent to yjconvention@youngjudaea.org or faxed to 646-649-2422. Please note that the medical form is embedded in your register and you need to make sure that the information is updated.

Bus transportation will be automatically provided for all attendees and is included in the price of convention. Bus route is dependent on enrollment. If you are planning to be driven by your parents, please let us know if you will be able to take additional teens from your area. The tentative bus schedule is below.

If you are planning to join us from outside of the Northeast, please have your flight arrive at Newark between 8 and 11am on Friday, May 25th, 2018. Because this is a local convention, we cannot promise that we can do regular pick-ups and drop offs at the airport. Please phone 917-595-2100 x209 before booking any flights.

Participants being driven to Camp Tel Yehudah, drop off time on Friday is 3:00pm and pick up on Sunday is 8:00am – 10:00am.

Participants under 18 are not permitted to drive themselves to convention. This is contrary to Young Judaea policy and anyone driving to convention must be dropped off and picked up by a parent or guardian. However, seasoned 18 year old drivers are permitted to drive themselves and other teens with permission from parents (please request form).

All transportation questions can be sent to yjconvention@youngjudaea.org.
