It’s just over a year and a half until we are all together in Kansas City celebrating YOUTH 2019. In July registration will open. Every UMC community is allowed to register for YOUTH 2019. No matter how small your youth group is you are welcome. Today we are answering some of the most common registration questions we’ve gotten so far. Keep reading for all the details.
What should I do before registration?
Every group should choose one adult leader to be their Primary Contact person. This person will be the one who registers their entire group. No one is allowed to register for the event as an individual. They must be registered by the Primary Contact person in their group.
When does registration open?
Tuesday, July 10, 2018. It will close Friday, May 31, 2019.
Just how much does registration cost?
Early Bird Registration- $319 (Available July 10, 2018 – January 31, 2019)
Regular Registration- $359 (Available February 1, 2019 – March 31, 2019)
Late Registration- $419 (Available April 1, 2019 – May 31, 2019)
There will be no deposits taken, only in full payments.
All payments will be due in full before the start of YOUTH 2019.
What happens if I need to cancel a registration?
Cancellations made during the Early Bird window (through January 21, 2019) get a full refund minus $99/person.
Cancellations made during the Regular window (February 1 – March 31, 2019) get a full refund minus $149/person.
You May cancel a registration through April 1, 2019. All cancellations must be made before April 1st to receive a refund.
You may make name changes or substitutions through May 31, 2019.
Will I be able to choose lodging when I register my group?
Yes! The day registration opens is also the day our housing blocks open at the Kansas City hotels we have partnered with.
Hotels are available on a first come first serve basis. We have partnered with 5 downtown Kansas City hotels, each within walking distance of the convention center. Prices will be made available this spring, but for budgeting purposes you can plan on rooms being between $140 and $150/night.
As we move closer to registration more details will become available. Keep watching our social media for all of the details and make sure you sign up for our weekly newsletter. If you have questions or concerns you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
