A key part of FSY is scripture study. Use of mobile phones during any FSY activity is usually not permitted and previously all youth were asked to use paper scriptures.
Youth are permitted mobiles to study scriptures in any FSY activity requiring scripture study. They are to be asked to only use their mobiles for scripture study in that activity. This would be in place of paper scriptures. They are to be asked that if they feel they will be tempted to use them for something else in the activity they should use paper scriptures.
If a young person is found using their mobile for something else, they will be asked to put their phone away and use paper scriptures.
All young people should still bring paper scriptures to FSY.
Youth who wish to use paper scriptures should not feel any pressure to use their mobiles.
We hope that all youth who wish to use their mobiles for scripture study will be able to do this and use their mobiles appropriately.
Any inappropriate use of a mobile phone or MP3-player during an FSY activity is prohibited. If you feel you cannot deal with this on your own, we advise you to leave them at home. Moreover, portable stereo devices, DVD/CD-players, gaming devices or similar things, bicycles, in-liners or skateboards are not allowed.
Each participant will be allocated to a group of 10-12 youth their own age:
• 14-15-year-olds (age on first day of conference)
• 16-18-year-olds (age on first day of conference)
Groups at FSY consist of one age group only. The allocation is automatic according to your birth date.
If you turn 16 between 1 May 2022 and 31 December 2022, you may choose for yourself which age group you prefer. Please contact your administrators when you submit your application if you have a preference.
If you want to be in the same group with a friend, you may name one person with your registration on the internet. That person needs to be
• the same gender
• the same age
• you must mutually mention each other with your registration.
Therefore, please co-ordinate this before you register.
This arrangement is non-committal as the groups will be combined from all participating stakes/districts. However, we will try to do our best to accommodate your wishes.
Please consider the allocation of groups and rooms as an opportunity to meet new people. Such friendships may become a lifelong enrichment.
Information on group and room allocation will be given at check-in only.
Each FSY participant is expected to participate in every activity.
Leaving the Venue
For safety reasons participants are not allowed to leave the premises during the FSY week. If parents want to pick up their children before the end of the week, they must make a prior arrangement with the FSY administrators.
